I had the same issue and figured out that my Google TV (or Roku, or Apple TV) picture quality was set to 4K.
4K video uses 233 Mb per minute or 14 GB in an hour. So if you have a 50 MB plan...that is a little over 5 hrs to consume that.
720p or 1080p uses only 2-4 GB per hour
480p uses .8 GB (800 Mb) per hour
So setting you picture quality will make a HUGE difference in how long you data lasts.
