Waterdawg19 The Astros play tomorrow. Last year I was using a web page via the Amazon browser on my firestick. I think it was "hdsports.me". Is anyone using this, or have a better option to watch the astros? Thank you

It seems as soon as I got the alert, by connection started buffering to make it difficult to watch anything. (Guessing they are throttling, haven't looked too deep into this).

Frankly, I didn't realize there was a cap for my residential service. I checked to see if they had any plans that bumped up the usage allotment but the only option is unlimited at $50 more a month. Unfortunately, in my area Xfinity is my only option.

I don't watch too much TV so not sure how we burned through 1TB, seems high.

Sorry I'm late in chiming in on this but like others have previously said you might want to get a router that you can track your internet usage if you think Xfinity is incorrect. I've been seeing reports of Xfinity indicating higher usage of data than your actually using because of lost packets between the server and user. I average 700 GB a month and stream tons but I do not download huge files all the time, I have never hit the 1 TB cap yet.

GT11 The files show you the size and the resolution. You can see varying file sizes for the same resolution. You can also experiment with different resolutions. It is hard to tell the difference between resolutions above 360p, so try a few sometime. If you aren't exceeding your data or not having buffering issues, it probably doesn't matter in your case.

Interesting. I use Terrarium now as well and I always pick a stream that says HD and usually pick the largest file. My thinking was always that the larger file size should have better resolution. So the smaller files still have HD res?
