“I see that Disney plus has three different quality settings for downloads. What are the differences between the Standard, Medium, and High?”

Disney+ is a standalone service for streaming content on demand with 129.8 million subscribers at the end of 2021. You can sign up on from a web browser on your desktop or mobile device, or by downloading the Disney+ app and signing up on your preferred device. There are over 500 films, 15,000 episodes, and 80 Disney+ originals from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic available on Disney+ and new content are always added.

Disney+ allows use to download Disney+ content on your supported mobile device so you can watch on the go when you don’t have an internet connection. These devices include:

  • Apple iPhones and iPads

Part 1 How to set Disney+ downloads quality

To select the quality of downloaded content and view the available storage space on your supported mobile device:

  1. Launch the Disney+ app on your phone or tablet
  2. Tap the Profile icon 
  3. Select App Settings
  4. Available device storage space is displayed at the bottom
  5. Select Video Quality and check Standard, Medium or High
  • Standard requires the least storage and is fastest to download
  • Medium requires less storage than High and is faster to download
  • High requires the most storage and is slowest to download 

Standard is somewhere between DVD & 720p. Medium looks HD, and High is just eye-popping. Each setting tells you how many hours of video you can fit if you select a new download option. If you set the quality too high and your device is out of room, you won’t be able to download anything. 

Let’s see how each of the options affect file size:

  • The Empire Strikes Back(2h 7m), Standard, 0.92GB 
  • A New Hope(2h 4m), Medium, 1.4GB
  • Return of the Jedi (2h 14m), High, 5.5GB

For shows, a 39-minute episode of The Mandalorian on high quality takes 1.5GB, but just 270MB on standard and 424MB on medium.
