Hello Nick,

It al depend on the quality of the stream.

Somewhere around this :
  • 0.7 GB per hour for SD (Standard Definition)
  • 3 GB per hour for HD (High Definition)

For a very loose example Netflix says they use (approximately) the following:
0.7 Gigabytes (GB) per hour of standard definition video
3 GB per hour for HD video
7GB per house for Ultra HD

It truly depends on the stream and how long you are watching it though. You can always watch for a few minutes and do some quick math to see how much it will use.

This is something I wouldn't recommend. I've done the same once streaming a tennis match while I was away from WiFi and my 2 GB were up rather quickly (I knew it'd happen).

Seeing how the average length of a baseball game these days is 3 hours, it's bound to put quite a dent in your data allowance.

You could stream audio from a radio broadcast of the game.
