How much data will I use watching a video on 9Now?

Watching videos online almost always counts towards your data limit, whether you’re on 9Now, Stan or somewhere else.

To make sure you get the highest quality video experience, 9Now uses adaptive bitrate. This means that we adapt the quality of the video stream you watch, based on the speed of your available internet connection. The faster your internet speed, the better quality video stream you will receive.

Higher quality video streams will use more data than lower quality streams.  Please note that we will never let you watch a video at a quality level that your internet connection cannot handle.
