To determine what amount of usage you can expect for a given hour of streaming, Netflix provides estimates on its website. Netflix estimates about 1 GB of data per hour for each stream of standard definition video, and up to 3 GB per hour for each stream of HD video. On this same Netflix help center article you can also read Netflix recommendations on how to control your Netflix data usage.

Where Comcast is trialing new data usage plans, 1 TB is included with XFINITY Internet at no additional charge, which by Netflix's estimates would represent 1000 hours of standard definition video streaming or 333 hours of HD video streaming of Netflix, or over 10 hours a day of HD streaming in any given month.
