There is a Netflix movie that allows you to see your Netflix speed.It’s called Example Short 23.976 – how it does this, I have no idea, but it seems to work most of the time.
First off though make sure you have your Netflix playback speed set to High.
2. I then tried Netflix on my Tivo over Ethernet and it gave me much higher bandwidth of 5800 kbps and a 1920 x 1080 resolution.
3. My third test was on my Samsung TV app. I got a very clear picture, but the speed never showed up – not sure why.
4. My final test was on the Roku on my wireless network. It also gave be 5800kbps and 1920 x 1080 resolution.
Hopefully, this test will help you diagnose your Netflix speeds.
Thanks again to Patrick and Robert of HD Nation for this tip.
