In an effort to fix its notoriously slow streaming speeds, Netflix has announced that its streaming platform will now enable users to “stream content in 8k (3840 x 2160)” at the same time.
This feature was announced alongside the launch of the streaming service’s new Netflix app on Roku devices earlier this month.
The announcement came at a time when Netflix’s new streaming service, which has now launched on Roku and Apple TV devices, has been experiencing a bit of a bump in traffic.
While the company is still struggling to overcome the initial performance issues, the new feature should help Netflix users get more than just a few hours of video per day to watch in the background.
As for how you can fix your 8k streaming problem, the Netflix app currently has the following options: “Resume a show or movies that is currently paused,” “Skip a show,” “Stop watching a show and return to the main menu,” “Clear a cache file on your device,” “Show a new show,” and “Show next episode of a series.”
If you’ve been unable to watch Netflix’s catalog of TV shows, movies, and other content since the streaming giant announced the new 8k streamer on Tuesday, you may want to consider getting a new Roku box or an Apple TV with the Netflix 8k app.
It might not be a major deal, but Netflix users will get a better viewing experience from the streaming platform.
