    did you unlock your bootloader? Once you unlocked from what I understand widevine auto goes from L1 to L3

    I can confirm that this is the case on my OP8P right now too. Bootloader locked. Just logged in netflix after years to check this out. Prime video is certanly SD as well. In the DRM info app it's L3 for me too.

    I watched 4K UHD content in Prime video yesterday before i run the 2 updates on OP8P, so im pretty sure it's on their end.

    No Bootloader is locked. Something to do with recent update I guess.

    I know it's hard to understand and read what i and ayan1mandal just said, but i can assure you, me personally used Prime Video before 10.5.5 and 10.5.6 with high definition video streams (eg higher res than L3 approved 480p). Only thing changed from the time between i watched my shows and now, is the two updates, which was pushed my device yesterday night.

    I am happy that you are replying, but you just can't say what you said that is not an update issue, just because you don't have it, while there are both of us with the issue explained clearly. It's not helping the discussion.

    No. It is locked. I booted into fast boot ( vol down + power on restart). It says bootloader locked.

    Very strange indeed !!!

    I am not saying that you are not telling the truth or whatever.. That is really strange issue, which is only connected with bootloader ( unlocked).

    As yours is locked, best contact support or report it as a bug.
    I hope it will be solved for you asap

    I am in the US. My bootloader was never unlocked but Widevine is L3. I can playback HD, 4k Netflix content on my desktop so I believe the problem is the phone
