How much data do I need to stream movies with Foxtel Play?
This is the big question. By Foxtel’s own calculations, watching two hours of Internet TV per day would use around 60GB of data per month. This is a lot of data, especially if you’re on a capped plan or if you pay for your usage per GB.
What is unmetered downloading and why do I need it?
Unmetered streaming or downloading is basically disconnecting certain services from your data usage. So if you could stream Foxtel Play unmetered, it means that none of your Foxtel Play usage would count against your data usage.

Yes. Foxtel Play does have an option to switch to a lower viewing quality in order to use less data. This will reduce your data usage per hour from around 1310MB to 470MB. Aside from this the only other way to control the amount of data you use is to control the amount of television that you watch.
