YouTube & Netflix Lowering Their Picture Quality

How To Improve the Streaming Quality?

Corona virus affects everything. First Netflix announced that they are lowering the streaming resolution, soon YouTube followed. It’s easy to predict that the other streaming companies will follow.

Is there a way to get the HD & 4K quality back for now? Yes…Kinda!

Luckily there is a device called Nvidia Shield TV, which has an AI based upscaler. It does pretty impressive job converting low quality (480p,720p,1080p) material up to 4K. Much more better than any TV system will do.

  • Fast. Really Fast. SHIELD TV takes media streaming to a whole new level, powered by the NVIDIA Tegra X1+ processor, SHIELD TV is the world’s most powerful Android TV streaming media player.
  • Dolby Vision – Atmos. Bring your home theater to life with Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos surround sound—delivering ultra-vivid picture quality and immersive audio. Enhance HD video in real-time to 4K for clearer, crisper visuals using next-generation AI upscaling.
  • Best-In-Class Design. The new SHIELD TV is compact, stealth, and designed to disappear behind your entertainment center, right along with your cables. With Gigabit Ethernet, dual-band AC Wi-Fi, a built-in power supply, and a microSD card slot for storage expansion, it is powerful, feature-packed, and built for behind-the-scenes brilliance. The all-new remote is more advanced than ever with motion-activated, backlit buttons—including a user-customizable button. With voice control, Bluetooth, IR control for your TV, and a built-in lost remote locator, you have the most advanced remote yet.
  • Unlimited Entertainment. Get the most 4K content of any streaming media player. Watch Netflix, Amazon Video, Disney+ and Vudu in crisp 4K HDR, and YouTube, Hulu Live, Google Play Movies & TV, and more in 4K. Stream from your phone with built-in Chromecast 4K. Add a game controller (sold separately) and play today’s most popular games like Fortnite with GeForce NOW
  • Voice Control. The built-in Google Assistant is at your command. See photos, live camera feeds, weather, sports scores, and more on the big screen. Dim the lights and immerse yourself in your favorite show or music using your voice. And control your SHIELD hands-free with Google Home or Alexa and Echo.
  • Included Components: Remote Controller
  • Power Source Type: Corded Electric

Where to buy? Check out Amazon Product Page. Also Remember to buy an HDMI cable too (it’s not included)

I’m pretty sure that their stock will sell out pretty quickly, because of the recent news. I’m sure there are other sites selling it online. Also Amazon UK.

I feel kinda bummed for this situation. I just launched a new YouTube channel that features high quality live music videos. I launched the channel faster due the Corona virus. To give people something to watch when trapped in home.

My wife and kids are at home. Schools, libraries, gyms, events, borders closed….whole country feels closed.

Be home, be safe!
