streaming services charging 4x the price for UHD vs 1080p is weird... like, it's the same damn content, and it isn't even that much heavier on bandwidth thanks to modern video compression

@uint8_t yes but the stooooooooooorage 😜 its soooo not expensive anymore.

@uint8_t 4k vs 720p prices at NetFlix is weird. Maybe it makes sense there. Amazon just has one price to my knowledge, I guess the one at Netflix is new. where else do they have different prices?

@nikita curiositystream/nebula. it might be some sale pricing on the low res subscription tho.

@uint8_t Isn't it 4 times the area? 🤪 But what's even worse is TV in Germany where you can get SD channels for free and have to pay extra for the same channel in HD. 😆 No, I don't watch TV.

@uint8_t Well, if you mean those fees for the state-funded (citizen-funded) channels... On the bright side those channels are in HD... 😆

@uint8_t just checked, it's just for curiositystream and not nebula. you get the full 4k with nebula, so 🤷
