The most important NightShift setting to configure is the download window. This is the time of day that NightShift will pre-load content. It should match your Free Zone or Bonus Bytes or be set to a time when you don’t usually use the Internet if you have an unlimited connection.

NightShift knows if you are using HughesNet or Exede. In the case of HughesNet, NightShift can automatically determine your current monthly usage and change its behavior. For Exede, you will be prompted for account information.
