Low quality content will be defined as content which either has a low bit-rate, if audio only content is being presented, or video quality lower than 480p in resolution, such as our old content, some of which was made over 10 years ago.
Standard quality content is what we describe as perfectly acceptable, and featuring a very decent bit-rate, for audio content around 128 – 256kbs. In terms of video content, SD content will be around the 480p – 560p in resolution.
High Definition quality
High Definition quality is what we describe as our high quality content. Videos supporting this banner will be supporting either the 720p or full 1080p quality. It’s worth noting, however, that whilst the content will support these High Definition qualities, streams may begin at lower quality in dependance of your Internet connection. Most, if not all, our HD available content, can be manually set to the HD quality setting.
4K / UHD quality
Whilst we don’t currently have any content on our website supporting it, 4K / UHD quality is what we’ll be showing for content featuring the latest and greatest in video quality known as either 4K, or Ultra HD. The definition of 4K means it’s four times the resolution of 720p HD, meaning quality of content could be pushed to 2560 x 1440.
U rating standard for Universal, meaning the content in question can be viewed by those of all ages and perfect for family viewing.
Uc rating is a variation of the Universal standard specified for more children targeted content, meaning whilst the content can be viewed by those of all ages, it’s target is of those of a much younger age, typically under the ages of 5.
PG rating is Parental Guidance, a rating just below the 12 rating. This means that whilst the content can typically be viewed by a family audience, the content may include content with darker structures and hints, though none included, of nudity or swearing.
12 rating means the content in question is targeted at audiences above the age of 12. This can be due to the inclusion of much darker content, including possibly graphical scenes of darkness such as blood and some swearing.
12A rating means the content in question is targeted at audiences above the age of 12. This can be due to the inclusion of much darker content, including possibly graphical scenes of darkness such as blood and some swearing. The addition of the A on the 12A is typically for Cinema releases, yet to receive Clarification upon release.
15 rating means the content in question is targeted at audiences above the age of 15. This can be due to the inclusion of much more graphical content including sex scenes and strong uses of swearing throughout. Unlike the 12 rating, the 15 rating, for these reasons, is not suitable for the viewing of any children or minors.
18 rating means the content in question is targeted at audiences above the age of 18. This can be due to the inclusion of intensive sex scenes, violent behaviour represented in a clear and graphical manour, high use of swearing and horror which could bruise the mind of a young adult.
18R rating is a exception to the 18 rating specified for Adult based entertainment. Content which features nothing but sexual scenes graphically and throughout with the intention of such from start to finish. Unlike prior ratings, the R18 rating includes a legal attachment, that those under the age of 18 are breaking the law to view such content as it’s that much unsuitable for those ages.
