- Tap Settings (Cog icon).
- Tap Device Settings.
- See Download Quality under Download Settings.
- Select ‘Better’ to download content in a higher quality. Note: this option will take a longer time to download and will use more device storage.
- Select ‘Good’ to download content in a lower quality. Note: this option will take a shorter time to download but will use less device storage.
DisneyLife will automatically adjust to give you the highest definition possible. Keep in mind a few things can affect the quality of the display of movies and TV shows streamed: your device, your location, the bandwidth available through and/or speed of your internet connection.
For the live TV channels, the images may appear a bit pixelated at first, but they will adjust on their own a few seconds after streaming starts. Live TV channels will stream in SD.
