Download Usage and VidZone
I installed the Vid Zone app for the PS3 last night and the kids love it.
I am curious though as to how much download it will use.

From my understanding they reckon and i got this from Whirlpool that youtube uses around 100- 130Meg per hour. I am wondering if this will be the same for Vidzone

Does anyone have any info about this?

Could be mate especially if it's an actual stream and not download to the harddrive.

I can't confirm until I start using it as well.

Not sure we will though considering we have Foxtel music channels.

Why pay for Internet and Foxtel as well.

I remember reading that it streams in 3 different qualities depending on how fast your internet connection is, so the better the quality the more bandwidth it uses. I downloaded this last night and it runs like crap on my 1Mb connection so I don't think my ISP has much to worry about.

I read a figure stating 11 meg a minute ?

An average of 100 - 200Mb a video is the best guesses I have read so far.
