Netflix has now certified 23 more devices for full HD playback. The new list includes the Pixel 2, 3, 3a along with the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro as well.
Netflix uses its own DRM and container formats. That is why the ability to watch Netflix in HD was dependant on whether your device has the Widevine L1 license or not. If your phone or tablet doesn’t have that Widevine L1 certification, then you are restricted to 480p content.
This has nothing to do with how powerful your device is. If there’s no Widevie L1, there’s no full HD. Here’s the list of all those 23 device which got the certification –
- Honor WaterPlay 8
