    I guess my real question would be, is there a way to monitor how much data the stream is using in a somewhat real time fashion?

    Or does that mean about 10 hours of video streaming?

    I think it should get you through the day but not much more than that

    Yea you'll probably go over your limit pretty quick. Thankful for my unlimited plan that is for sure. I'd suggest just watching the games you need too lol or catching the end.

    Appreciate the help. Just one game I have to watch, the rest I can get score updates and be fine.

    your carrier might have a data calcluator where you can put all things like minutes of streamed video, emails, webpages, just input approximates to see what that adds up too, not full proof but will give you a good approximate

    here is the one from Rogers my carrier it should be close

    Data Calculator

    looks like 25 hours a video is about 1.5GB

    Crap

    Last season, it was amazing how good it was over 3g

    For whatever reason, the 3g today and yesterday is embarrassingly bad and I am in a solid 3g spot
