Here is some more info:


What is Stream Saver?

Stream Saver allows you to watch more video on your wireless devices while using less data by streaming content that it recognizes as high-definition video at standard-definition quality, similar to DVD (about 480p), so you can enjoy more of what you love on your smartphone or tablet. Multi-Line account owners and members manage Stream Saver settings for their own lines. You can turn Stream Saver off or back on by following the steps below.

AT&T deception never ceases to amaze me. I just signed up for unlimited streaming, and found that the initial default setting is stream saver "on". What a rip off? Why would I sign up for unlimited data, only to restrict stream speed. It took me 20 minutes to find the "off" buttom buried deep in the settings. Come on, AT&T!
