How much is buffered?

Jump to solution

When going to a new show, how much of it is buffered before it starts showing?

The reason I ask is because we're getting near the monthly data limit of our internet provider.  When kids go back and forth between shows, and it re-buffers each time, I'm wondering how much of our data allocation is being wasted.

There is no real way to tell. It will vary with each channel, the particular show, your device, and your Internet speed.

if data usage is a problem,lower the quality.

dropping to SD from HD could cut it almost in half.

though,some channels can be changed in the account(roku or web) while others might have to be changed per video.
