Almost all mobile devices that support streaming video can utilize Stream Saver. This includes the iPhone and other smartphones, tablets, and AT&T Wireless Home Internet. GoPhone devices capable of streaming video content also support Stream Saver.
Sometimes Stream Saver does not kick in when streaming video on a wireless device. There are two main reasons why Stream Saver doesn't work every time video is played using cellular data:
AT&T is rolling out its Stream Saver service to customers across the country. The company has stated it will notify individuals when Stream Saver is activated on their accounts. This means if you haven't heard from AT&T about the feature it hasn't been turned on yet.
Yes, when Stream Saver is enabled on a phone line this feature will carry over when roaming internationally. Content recognized as video by AT&T will be throttled automatically whether an international package has been activated or not.
GoPhone users with international data usage plans can also utilize Stream Saver while roaming overseas.
AT&T Stream Saver reduces streaming video quality to Standard Definition (SD). This means that video streams are throttled to DVD quality, or approximately 480p resolution.
