Re: I used nearly 40 GB data yesterday and watched 9 hrs of tv. Doesnt this seem excessive?

Depends what you're streaming.  Netflix, for instance, lists their streaming rates as:

  • SD - up to 0.7 GB/Hour
  • HD - up to 3 GB/Hour
  • UHD - up to 7 GB/Hour

Do you return your Roku to its Home page when done watching to prevent it from continuing to stream in the background?

There is also a Roku "bandwidth saver" option which stops streaming activity if there has been no user input for four hours.  Settings > Network > Bandwidth saver
