Streaming in Standard or HD??

Can someone tell me the reason for this..
We have a client who watches on an live stream for a sporting event on his ipad. He used apple tv to put onto a very large LCD (50"+)

Now ideally he wants to watch in HD... we have a 5mb dedicated upload so can handle uploading it... but it seems his side the download speed is up and down.

So if we stream HD it drops out quite often, if we stream web or normal it seems to work well.

My question: if he watches in HD does his video not just adjust to his maximum download speed?... or is there a cross over between WEB - Standard - HD to what a video can compress to while watching?

is there any illustration around to explain this to him?
