Can you stream Netflix on HughesNet?

Yes, you can stream Netflix on HughesNet. All of HughesNets plans have download speeds at 25 Mbps and Netflix recommends a download speed of 25 Mbps to stream in 4K so you can stream in 4K but not much else. Emailing and surfing the web are activities that need low download speeds to run, but it is possible with the fluctuation of download speeds that this could be done at the same time. If you were wanting to watch Netflix at a lower quality like in HD then you would only need a recommended speed of 5 Mbps. This is a large jump from 5 Mbps to 25 Mbps so if you aren’t worried about the quality of what you are watching then you can stream your shows or movies in HD or even SD which is recommended at 3 Mbps. When streaming shows or movies at 3 or 5 Mbps you have the option to do other activities like stream music or make a video conference call or check email at the same time. 25 Mbps is not preferable in most situations with multiple people or from working at home, but if you are the only one in your residence 25 Mbps might be just enough for you. If you want different options for satellite internet with different speeds then look into Viasat, they offer plans up to 100 Mbps.
