Hello again, all.

So I like watching Netflix, as most people do, and I noticed that for whatever reason, the videos aren't in high quality.

I wouldn't mind if the videos were in 480p because a good movie is a good movie no matter the quality, but the video quality jumps between 240p and 288p. I don't even know how that's possible, but whatever.

I just want to know if there is any way I can force it to play in a higher quality. If there's a way I can get it to play in at least 480p, I'll be happy.

Important Info
I'm at college using their WiFi.
My Wii U is hooked up to an HD TV with the HDMI cable.
The online works, obviously, and I can watch YouTube videos in HD no problem (on the browser).

Thank you in advance!

Hmm... for me, Netflix videos are usually better quality than youtube videos. Even if I compare HD Netflix videos to HD youtube videos.

I have no idea.

I rarely use Netflix on on anything else other than a PC. If they work the same way, it usually depends on your internet connection...since my streams always start out with a somewhat cruddy quality, but 1 or 2 minutes in everything clears up.

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...

Its more then likely your internet. I watch Netflix and Youtube and Netflix always looks better on my TV then Youtube. The only other thing I can think of is maybe check Netflix's site for a solution.

Have you tried Netflix on another device? I wonder if your university is throttling Netflix traffic.
