Hi guys, I have been enjoying the app via Samsung Smarthub for while now and its been pretty much flawless . Just wondering if there is a mark on your roadmap for HD streaming via this platform? If you can't say then perhaps a sneaky hint of if it is in-the-works or not? My TV is the ES6300 (2012 model)

Samsung should stream up to 720p provided your connection is strong enough!
It'll automatically adjust on its own.

Hmmm. When you say strong enough.. what sort of threshold are we talking? My connection is about 5.5mbit. The TV is connected via Ethernet so no wireless interference to worry about.

For what its worth, using something like Attack on Titan as a benchmark in 720p via the website it looks really good and plays without any buffering issues so presumably the bandwidth is there. Via the Samsung app i'm not sure but it certainly doesn't look 720p, maybe 480p? I guess its not really a fair comparison though since they're probably different encodes/formats?

That should be fast enough to stream 720p on your device.

And you're correct, different encodes for each device.
