Static webpage Blob Container or Media Services for video?

Fabian Zepeda Carmona 1 Reputation point

I have a static webpage content located in Azure Container. There are a lot of videos that are being used on the webpage since those are informative and to share data to users in a company. I've seen a huge increase on the Data Transfer since it appears to be more and more usage (which is good) it started in $20 and now it is in $250 (in 4-6 months)

I would like to know if a good way to solve this transfer increase would be: Change video to Media Services or stay in Blob Content?

Thanks for the guidance and advice

    To get a better understanding of pricing I recommend checking the overview for Media Services and then using our pricing calculator to compare pricing with Blob storage.
