Just watched the replay of the launch. Brilliant quality feed and what an amazing sight.

Re: Shuttle launch - live HD TV stream

I picked up a post on some other forums I use with the link just before I posted. I knew they did a HD feed but didn't know where to find it. Normally I'd watch NASA TV.

Hmmm... Didn't think of that!
[me=jelv]goes to check VMBU[/me]
Edit: About .5GB I'd guess (assuming it's all appeared on VMBU by now)

jelv - nearly gave me a heart attack - it would have been better if he had written 0.5GB as first glance I didn't spot the decimal point

Fortunately streaming usage is only about 140MB and total usage for Thursday is only 435MB  Grin

Re: Shuttle launch - live HD TV stream

(a) As I'm on PAYG I don't get the traffic breakdown so it is impossible to identify how much was down to streaming
(b) I continued to watch some time after the launch
(c) I watched a bit of the BBC news yesterday
and d'oh
(d) I've just remembered NetWorX gives you an hourly breakdown of usage - it was actually just below 300MB
