Stadia Streaming Limits

I am thinking of getting Stadia when it comes out for my 4k TV, but not sure if there is a download/streaming limit as 4k stuff will be pretty heavy on the bandwidth front

Re: Stadia Streaming Limits

Virgin don't have download limits, netflix and Amazon 4k content needs about 25meg   download speed, I watch hours of them without issue

Re: Stadia Streaming Limits

The issue will be latency, and VM naturally has higher latency than ADSL for example, i would hold off until they launch the free tier and seeing if you can find a cheap game to test it with before dropping cash on the 4k experience

I've been using GeForce now for quite a while with zero latency issues can't wait to get my hands on the founders pack

Re: Stadia Streaming Limits

Yeah but I won't be paying for the free ones that come with it- and they are free, been confirmed by the price of Stadia alone
