To utilize this feature, simply look up the video titled “Example Short 23.976” in the Netflix search bar, hit “Play,” and as the video begins, your bandwidth usage will appear on the screen in real-time.

This bandwidth tool is also compatible with other devices that support Netflix streaming.

However, what sets the Apple TV version apart is its ability to show the actual bandwidth usage rather than just the various video quality levels, which is the case with other devices like the iPad, iPhone, or through a web browser.
