Data Usage

I'm using hotspot on iphone6 for my laptop. Does streaming live tv from dishanywhere use the same amount of data as watching a movie from your dish DVR?

wjmontano, keeping your data usage in check is important and we get the concern of making sure you don't exceed your mobile hotspot limit. Streaming live TV on your smart TV can use more data as compared to using a laptop. Your data usage can vary based on TV resolution and amount of time to upload a movie or show. You can learn more about data usage at the link attached. Does this help provide clarity?
