    @Reza Sherafat: Thanks, I looked again, and I cannot find price information related to the data stream - its all about message size. Is the stream priced that way?

    @Cholm321: The feature is still in preview and free to use during the preview period. The actual pricing has not been announced yet but will be on the page Reza pointed you to when we announce the General Availability. For now there is the following message in the Q&A section of the IoT Hub pricing page:

    This feature can be used at no charge during the Preview period.

    The final pricing for device streams will be announced when the feature is generally available. As a general frame of reference, each unit of S1, S2, S3 SKU would provide sufficient streaming capacity to remotely access 100, 1,000, and 10,000 devices, respectively, for 1 hour per month per device. This available stream capacity can be used for other application scenarios including file transfer, remote debugging, or your custom application protocols as well.

    What's the roadmap of this feature especially the availability in other regions (West Europe)?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Roland,

    We will expand to more regions (including Europe) in the next couple of month. Are you interested in West Europe specifically?

    Full availability across all IoT region will be scoped for GA.

    Thanks

    Hi Reza,

    yes, we're specifically interested in West Europe. We are evaluating this feature for a client project. Till now we had planned to use HybridConnection in AzureRelayManagement to tunnel RDP and videostream but this feature would simplify the process immensely.

    Hi Reza,

    in one of the last posts you have posted that the software will be available in several regions, specially West Europe. This is also interesting for us. Do you have plans doing this in the near future?

    Thanks in advance.

    We'd be very interested in having this on the Northern Europe and also UK hubs if possible. So are we looking at Q1 2020?

    Device streams will be going live in North Europe and Southeast Asia in the next couple of months.
