Using PIK TV, and playing a game at the same time....

Howdy.

 

I have Pik TV on in the background while I'm playing a game.   Both are connected online.   How does Pik TV tell the differences between the two? 

 

Reason I'm asking.   This is the first month my internet data used has gone from around 60gigs a month up to so far 125gig usage this month.   Pretty much the only differences this month is the new Pik TV Box.

If watching a channel on the PikTV device with the PikTV App it won't consume any data even running in the background. If you use any other apps on the device (youtube, netflix etc) it consumes data and goes against your cap.

 

Easy way to remember using the PikTV App:

 

PikTV Device - No Data consumed

Android/ios mobile app - Data Consumed

PikTV Browser - Data Consumed

By PikTV in the background, do you mean on the PikTV device, or on your computer in an additional window?
