I just upgraded my plan to One Plus International.  Now when I view Netflix on my PC or Samsung Smart TV, via wifi tethering on my phone, most of the programming is only SD.  This is not what I perceived the plan to be.

Is there something that requires to be enabled to allow Netflix to stream in HD when tethering data?

Thanks

I believe I found the answer, you must go to
https://my.t-mobile.com/profile.html

In media settings tab:

Set media preferences

HD Video Resolution

There is a 'button' to enable HD content.  Switch that on.

That's the exact instruction set we would have provided. 😊

I have the T-Mobile One International plan on only my line amongst 3 other numbers on the plan and I am still unable to stream HD video over LTE on my phone or tethering...

I also don’t see the media settings option on T-Mobile.com or the iOS app. I found the exact url on another thread ( https://my.t-mobile.com/profile/media_settings

The media settings state that my line is not eligible for media settings even though I have the T-Mobile One International plan...
