I recently got a data cap at 700GBs per month, and I was just wondering since I watch Crunchyroll a lot, how many GBs, or even better MBs Crunchyroll uses if I stream in 1080p. Thanks~

Probably figure about 850 MB per episode or so.

You really don't need to worry with a 700GB data cap. That is pretty huge and you'd have to try extremely hard to break it. I stream a truly immense amount of HD programming, and coupled with my dad who also streams tons of stuff we rarely break 250GB a month.

Oh thats great news thanks. I was just wondering cause i'm in a family of four and we all stream videos. What i'm really worried about is Netflix and their insane streaming demands.

Well with 4 people doing heavy streaming I guess it's more possible you could toe the line. I still think it would take an awful lot of streaming to reach that point though.

If you get worried about it you should just watch some stuff in 720P since that resolution pretty much halves the usage and still looks pretty good. We're talking anime here so it's not like you're going to need to see the pores on every characters face like live action

If you weren't aware, you can control Netflix resolution here (if you're logged in on the web):

Size of the encodes may slightly vary as some content has more movement/colors and compresses to a different degree than content with low movement/fewer colors.
