Hello,
I was thinking of streaming some t.v. shows on an iphone, how much data do you think that would require?

I found this chart:

Seems like 2 gigs would give me 2,000 minutes of streaming video, not bad! I wonder, though, if the NBC streams, for example, would cost more data because they're higher quality than regular youtube.

How are you going to stream TV on your iPhone? Jailbroken? Or are you using some bypass around the US-only restrictions on NBC, ABC, etc?
