0.3 to 3G per hour which you can control in your netflix settings:

 

  • Access your Account page from a web browser and select Playback Settings.
  • Select your desired data usage setting (please note that each estimate below is per stream, and that restricting data usage may affect video quality):

    • Low (0.3 GB per hour)

    • Medium (SD: 0.7 GB per hour)

    • High (Best video quality, up to 3 GB per hour for HD and 7 GB per hour for Ultra HD)

    • Auto (Adjusts automatically to deliver the highest possible quality, based on your current Internet connection speed)

if you are using your cell data, xfinity does not charge you for any data use.

If you don't use xf internet, why would any xf data limit worry you?

 

If you are considering xf internet then it depends on the data plan. Flexible Data, Terabyte, or Unlimited.
