How much broadband data will I use watching Lightbox?

On Broadband we estimate that 60 minute of Lightbox video streaming uses around 1.5GB (on standard definition) and 3GB on High Definition (HD).

Using your mobile data we estimate that 60 minutes of Lightbox video streaming uses around 300MB – 1GB depending on the quality of your connection. If you're watching on your mobile device, we'd recommend that you switch to a WiFi connection first, rather than using your mobile data.

Our Unlimited Broadband plans are a great way of getting the peace of mind so that you don't have to worry about Lightbox using up your data cap.

What are the minimum broadband speed requirements for watching Lightbox?

Lightbox requires a minimum internet bandwidth of 2Mbps in order to access quality viewing of the content.

Slow or low quality video

Lightbox requires a minimum internet bandwidth of 2Mbps to get a consistent stream. For an optimal HD / large screen experience, around 10Mbps bandwidth is required. Steps can be taken to improve broadband speeds by updating your home wiring and installing splitters and this is done as a matter of course with the installation of VDSL and Ultra Fibre. Also remember that if other users are on the internet consuming bandwidth in the home at the same time, the bandwidth available for Lightbox could be reduced.

To support the online streaming of shows in high definition customers on:

  • ADSL will need to have broadband speeds of at least 5Mbps down (we suggest you check your broadband speed to be sure)
  • Ultra VDSL's increased speeds of from 15Mbps* downstream ensure even smoother streaming
  • Ultra Fibre's speeds of more than 30Mbps* downstream which is up to 7x faster than ADSL even when using multiple devices in the home would ensure the best streaming
  • * Indicative speeds. Individual customers may not experience these speeds due to a variety of factors such as distance to exchange or cabinet, house wiring, computer speed, number of connected devices, ages of connected devices, etc.
