What is the max Netflix stream bit rate you can get on iPad Airs?


I thought we were supposed to be able to stream in 1080p (3850kbps), but I never go above 720p (3000kbps) - according to the available example videos.

Check in  the iPad's settings, under Device Info, and see what the resolution of the screen is. The screen has to be higher than 720p to get a stream higher than that.

Even on an iPad, could you really notice the difference between 720 and 1080 without putting your nose on the screen?
 

I would think almost certainly yes.

While playing the test video today (to test something completely unrelated) I did (briefly) get a 1080p stream on my iPad air today, so I can confirm that it is possible. As to why we're all staying at 720p most of the time is still a mystery.
