Depends on codecs and compression

but

I think its like

nextflix - 7Mb/s
youtube - (depends on uploader) usually between 10-12Mb/s

other services im not so sure about

FYI standard bluray is around 18Mb/s

5 Mbps should be enough

I believe Netflix's "Super HD" (1080p) is 5800kbps, so 6meg should be enough for that, but as above it depends where you're streaming it from

Standard Netflix HD will run in 5 Mbps, and super needs HD is more but will only play if bandwidth available

I'm not sure what Netflix's definition of HD and SuperHD is, I was under the impression HD = 720 and Super HD was 1080.

House is "Super HD" and these are the video quality options I have, seems to only go to 5800

1080p is usually called Full HD, not Super HD.

Usually, but not in Netflix's terms it seems, apparently both are 1080P but Super HD is somehow a better 1080P... http://www.netflixfixer.com/2013/03/6-things-you-sho...

Yeah, Netflix made up the term themselves to mean Full HD with a higher Netflix bitrate than their normal bitrate. A TV screen resolution for instance has no concept of bitrate, 1080p is 1080p (Full HD).
