Data usage for Foxtel Internet TV

Post by Catnip » Mon Jul 16, 2012 12:36 pm

I was thinking of taking advantage of the Samsung Internet Tv offer from Foxtel for 8 channels for the Olympic Games.
I would like an idea of data usage per hour for streaming these channels. I currently have a 200gb download limit.
Would appreciate any help providing data usage.
Many thanks

Just checking FAQ for Foxtel Internet TV and found this data usage


"FOXTEL on Internet TV channels are unmetered to residential Telstra BigPond broadband customers*. For other Internet Service Providers data transferred is offset against your data plan. This is transferred at a maximum rate of approximately 1300 MB (megabytes) per hour.

You can lower data usage by changing the quality of your video. To do this go press 'C' the yellow button whilst watching the channel and then select between High, Medium and Low. High will use 1300 MB per hour, medium 950 MB per hour and low 800 MB per hour."

Has anyone actually used Foxtel internet or have an idea about which usage is correct?

Would appreciate any info.
