Streaming video on an iPad uses up 2 gigabytes of data over six to 12 hours of streaming movies, correlating to 1/6 to 1/3 of a gigabyte used per hour of video.

The amount of data used to stream video is around 0.3 gigabytes per hour at low quality, 0.7 gigabytes per hour at medium quality, 3 gigabytes per hour at HD quality, and 7 gigabytes per hour at Ultra HD quality.
