How to activate HD video streaming

If you have a PlusUp add-on on your account, you can turn on HD video by following these steps. If there are multiple lines on an account that you want to add it to, you'll need to do this for each line.

To activate from the T-Mobile app

  1. Open the T-Mobile app. If you don't have it, download it now.
  2. Tap MORE.
  4. Tap Media Settings.
  5. If you have multiple lines on your account, make sure the line you're making changes to is showing. (If it's not, tap the down arrow to open the drop-down to select another line on the account).
  6. Next to HD Video Resolution, you can toggle it ON or OFF.

To activate from My T-Mobile

  1. Log in to My T-Mobile with your T-Mobile ID. (Learn about how to register for a T-Mobile ID.)
  2. Click PROFILE (located in the upper right).
  3. On the Profile page, click on Media Settings (located along the left), which opens the MEDIA SETTINGS along the right.
  4. You can toggle the HD Video Resolution ON or OFF.

Things to know about HD video

  • Activating HD video resolution only provides the ability to view higher resolution video streams by turning off video optimization. It doesn't change the actual, available resolution of streaming video. The video resolution isn't determined by T-Mobile, but rather it's determined by the video content provider (like YouTube or Netflix).
  • Once you turn it on, HD video streaming availability should take effect immediately, but it may require closing and re-opening the app or browser window, or restarting your device.
  • All on-network data used, including free streaming data, counts toward the heavy-user threshold of 50GB in a billing cycle, after which a T-Mobile-branded customer will no longer receive highest priority on the network. When an HD video is active, streaming high-definition video will use data much faster than optimized video, and brings up to the possibility of de-prioritization if you use enough data to reach that limit in a given month.
