Chromecast is constantly communicating with the web. I have had it use up 100MB of data while idle and no tv on, a day. I am only allotted 333MB per day. So now I have the module on a switch as to turn it off.

Metered internet service, like Exede is not really suitable for doing much streaming of video. That's why most of us have non internet means of watching TV, might be worth looking into.
