    Has anyone got a definitive list of bitrates that Sky Go uses? My neighbour's unwell so I set his laptop up so he could watch the football in bed yesterday afternoon. All went swimmingly well except for chewing through 3GB of his 10GB monthly quota, & that was knocking it off at half time. If my rough calcs are correct that equates to streaming at 4Mbps. He doesn't have HD so should only have been connected to the standard def channel.

    I know you can manually drop the bitrate down but I'd like to know what the official bitrates are.

    Fastest bit rate is about 3.5 I think.

    I set my neighbour's up for him on Sunday so he could watch the football in bed & it chewed through 3GB of data in approx 100 mins on the auto setting. That's around 4Mbps & 1/3 of his monthly quota.

    Really need to know what the lower rates are.
