Submission + - Netflix offers new bandwidth options (

BagOBones writes: Due to low bandwidth caps, Netflix is now offering a third lower bandwidth option to users in Canada, in addition to the original two options which were Full quality and SD only mode.. Netflix lists the three settings as follows:

        "Good" — The default setting with good picture quality and lowest data use per hour (about 0.3 GBytes/hour)
        "Better" — Better picture quality and medium data use per hour (about 0.7 GBytes/hour)
        "Best" — Best picture quality and highest date use per hour (generally about 1.0 GBytes/hour — or up to 2.3 GBytes/hour when streaming HD content)
