AT&T LogoAT&T said it is preparing a new service that will allow customers to stream more video content over the wireless network and conserve their data.

Stream Saver, set to become available early next year, will downgrade streamed video to 480p so it chews through less wireless data. AT&T said it plans to alert customers when Stream Saver is available, and customers will be able to switch it on or off at will.

Once customers activate it, all content Stream Saver can identify as video will be downgraded to DVD quality. Stream Saver does not impact the quality of music streamed from services such as Spotify.

Moreover, Stream Saver does not allow for unlimited video watching via LTE; rather, it is a tool designed to help people reduce their data consumption when needed while still allowing them to enjoy video content over the network.
In comparison, T-Mobile’s BingeOn service allows for unlimited video streaming from select providers over LTE without impacting users’ monthly data allotment.
