Netflix said, “We recently created new encoding formats that deliver content at the same or higher quality at a reduced file size (or bitrate),” during the release.
“These more efficient encodes provide a big benefit to members, who can stream higher quality video and audio for the same or less bandwidth, and to Internet Service Providers (ISPs), who see reduced demand on their networks,” according to Netflix.
