When using 3G, you can watch the channel in standard quality, in order to minimize bandwidth requirements. However when the device is connected to a Wi-Fi network, you will automatically have access to a higher quality version of the channel which makes full use of the high speed connectivity offered by Wi-Fi networks. If you like, you can change the default settings to view the standard quality version of the channel at all times.”
