With the premiere of the proposal Movistar Plus+ to replace the Lite version, the truth is that all sorts of doubts began to arise around this new OTT. One of them is the connection speed required to view each of the content or channels offered by this blue carrier alternative, which other companies’ customers can hire without problems.
To dispel doubts, we are going to find out the connection speed in Mbps required for seamless viewing of content. And, above all, what is speed for? watch channels, movies or series in 4K. Thus, when you are going to play any content, you can do it without cuts. And remember, this OTT allows you to use up to two screens at the same time.
Speed recommended by Movistar
If you look at the carrier’s new OTT FAQ, you will see that the connection speed is not mentioned. But not necessarily, as this service is the same as Movistar Plus +, so you need the same internet quality so it can go smoothly.
Although, minimum Mbps they change depending on the quality with which you want to enjoy the content on the blue operator’s TV platform. And the fact is that the worse the connection, the worse it will look. While everything is clear.
If we look at the Movistar community, we can see that the operator recommends the following speed:
“For see Movistar+ in devices We recommend an internet connection with a speed of at least 3 Mbps, and preferably 6 Mbps or more. If the Internet speed you contracted does not exceed 3 Mbps, make sure that no other devices are connected to your network .“.
Therefore, a minimum of 3 Mbps, although it is best to have 6 Mbps so that any of your devices can cut or quality loss when viewing any content offered by the operator’s platform. Although for better content, the operator recommends having a better connection. Otherwise, you will not be able to achieve the image resolution that you are looking for.
To watch movies or series in 4K
On the other hand, it is necessary to achieve acceptable quality and avoid cuts. On the other hand, if you want to enjoy 4K UHD quality, then you will have to increase the speed of your Internet connection. In this case, the minimum Mbps increase, otherwise the movie or series cannot be watched in this quality.
Once again, from Movistar they let us know what is recommended it’s 15 Mbps. So, with this minimum speed, the content is already visible with Plus + in 4K. On the other hand, if you want to play in Full HD, they also recommend that you have at least that connection. Be aware that these minimum Mbps they request are lower than other OTT platforms at the moment. So that’s an advantage over the many options you can hire right now.
