Stu1: I think I have worked it out , I brought a Vodafone tv to try but didn’t like it I turned the unit off so it wouldn’t use data , chorus has come and installed Fibre and I’m thinking the unit has switched on and has been running, would Vodafone tv use 2.84 gb per hour?.

 

Not sure about Vodafone TV however for Netflix:

 

  • Low (0.3 GB per hour)
  • Medium (SD: 0.7 GB per hour)
  • High (Best video quality, up to 3 GB per hour for HD and 7 GB per hour for Ultra HD)

I am guessing Vodafone TV would be similar

No different to any other streaming box, except unlike youtube it doesnt stop after a few hours to ask if youre still there.

thats true makes sense for to run all the time, might look at wireless data for them for a month   it’s expensive going over the data cap

Just pop him onto an unlimited plan. Problem solved, and the cost difference nowadays is negligible.

That usage is pretty Brutal though, VF should really give a warning...

 

 

They do actually, on the box it says the service requires a Fibre Connection with unlimited data

Exactly what i was going to say. These days who doesn’t have an uncapped plan, especially if you bought a vtv?
