What does the "SD" Icon in the upper left corner of some content mean?

If you see a small white rectangle with the letters "SD" in the upper left of the frame while streaming content on any of the WBTVD portals or apps it means that this content is only available in a lower resolution and not in HD or multiple bit rates. We are actively working to replace all "SD" streams with "HD" versions but it will take some time.
