Wow. Over 100MB per minute for a 1080p stream that offers the equivalent of 720p graphics on local hardware. Who is this made for? With data usage like this it is useless for streaming to a phone due to the tiny data caps on mobile plans, and even on a home internet connection this could easily put you over your monthly data allowance if you game alot, especially the 4K streams.

100MB per minutes is 13 mbps. Often my kids both have you tube running and netflix playing on the tv, 13 mbps isn't that much nowadays.

It's not meant for people with data caps, yet you can always upgrade to unlimited? I switched to unlimited since 500GB a month wasn't even enough anymore with everyone streaming video.

Perhaps it's aimed at the Chinese market where you can't play more than 1.5 hours a day anyway :)
