How can I save data while watching on ZEE5

Are you always anxious about your data consumption while streaming your favourite shows on Zee5? Worry no more! Zee5 has your back with its nifty 'Data Saver Mode.' This feature allows you to enjoy an endless stream of entertainment, even with minimal data. This article will guide you on how to activate this feature both on your mobile app and on the website.

Before We Begin:
Ensure you're getting the best viewing experience by updating your app to the latest version

 Save Data on Your Mobile App

 Let's start with the Zee5 mobile app. Here's how to reduce your data consumption:

 1.       Start Viewing: Choose your favourite video and start watching.

 2.       Dive into Settings: While your video is playing, look for the “Settings” option on your screen. Tap on it to reveal a drop-down menu with various options.

 3.       Choose Your Video Quality: In the drop-down menu, you'll find an option for “Video Quality.” Tap on it.

 4.       Activate Data Saver Mode: In the list of video quality options, select “Data Saver – 240p.”

 Voila! Your video will now play in data saver mode, conserving your precious mobile data while still letting you enjoy your favourite content.

 Save Data on the Website

The process is just as straightforward on the Zee5 website. Here's how:

1.       Start Viewing: Choose and play your preferred video.

2.       Find the Settings: As your video streams, look for the “Settings” option on the player. Click on it to bring up a list of video quality options.

3.       Select Data Saver Mode: In the list of options, click on “Data Saver – 240p.”

And that's it! Your video will continue playing in data saver mode, letting you enjoy Zee5 content without worrying about excessive data consumption.

A Gentle Reminder

While the data saver mode is an excellent feature to minimise data use, it does come with a slight trade-off. The picture quality will not be as high as in other modes. So, if you're watching on data saver mode, expect a decrease in video resolution. However, it still ensures you can enjoy your content without consuming too much data.

Remember, at the end of the day, entertainment should be enjoyable, not a cause for worry. With Zee5's data saver mode, you can sit back, relax, and watch your favourite shows without constantly checking your data balance!
