TV Anywhere data usage - 4G

Please could someone give me an indication of how much data I would use per hour of viewing TV Anywhere over a 4G connection? Typically would be watching TV shows / Sport. 

Thank you.

Re: TV Anywhere data usage - 4G

You can currently only watch Sky Cinema and Sky Sports via the apps on mobile data. Channels watched through the main TV Anywhere app can only be watched when connected to WiFi.

How much mobile data is used for Sky Cinema and Sky Sports will depend on the quality of your mobile connection and what you're watching. I think the top bitrate is around 3.5Mbps.

Thank you for your reply.

It's disappointing to hear that the main TV Anywhere App only works on WiFi....especially because when I was discussing my data requirements with a Virgin Mobile customer service person last week I specifically said that I'd be using it to watch TV Anywhere, and so I went for the 4 Gb data allowance!

Perhaps it should be renamed "TV Anywhere as long as there is a good WiFi connection"
