They will work just fine, but will use up to 2 GB per  hour on most HD programming. 

You will use your data up very quickly.

Hello Louise, 

These are connected devices that focus on streaming video, so having one connected to your Exede service can mean you'll go through a lot of data quickly. Be sure you've got a data plan that can keep up with this level of streaming. 

How to Maximize Your Data

Check your usage regularly - Make it a habit to check your data usage regularly throughout your billing cycle — especially in the first few months of service. This helps you avoid surprises and gives you a feel for your pattern of usage – and how you and other users in your household may need to adjust it. To view your Usage Meter, log into your account through the Customer Portal.

We use the Roku player on our television.  It works fine.  We average a couple hours a day of streaming Netflix, Acorn, Funimation and are 21 days into our month and have used 60 gigs.

Exede is by far the worst internet service ever, and yes, this will use up your data on day one. Avoid this company like the plague!
