    Hi all,

    I posted awhile back asking if the Priv could do live video streams, i.e. Facebook, YouTube, Showtime, ESPN+, so I can stream boxing while Uber'ing (not that I watch the video, but I can at least listen to the commentary). It sounded like it could, so I got the phone, and was able to put it to use on May 25th, much to my satisfaction!

    However, I noticed it used about 2 GB of data in about an hour. I believe when I did a live stream in the past on my iPhone 5C (I think that's the version I have), I think it was more like 1 GB/hour. The former was ESPN+, the latter was Showtime, so maybe that's the only difference, but thought I'd post here and ask. I did look in ESPN+'s settings to see about reducing the quality of the feed, but didn't find anything. I saw a thread concerning reducing the screen resolution to save battery life, and was wondering if that would reduce data usage too? I think I kept it off full screen, since I wasn't sure if that would matter or not.

    Or if someone could direct me how to monitor my data usage even when on WiFi, I could mess with the screen resolution and test it myself here at home, before using it on the road. The way I came up with the 2 GB/hour was by logging into my AT&T account online, and looking at my data log.

    Thanks in advance,
    Josh

    try your provider's website. I have att and there is a "stream saver" (may not be the exact name) I can toggle on or off for each line on my plan. not sure if other providers have a similar option? not sure if there is a setting within the priv itself that will compress data or not? maybe in the espn app itself?

    stream saver will be there under manage devices and features, depending on your rate plan and provisioning
