Why is there such a long delay?

change channel

I have a Smart Samsung TV. I use the DirecTV stream app via that TV. How can I change channels directly instead of scrolling thru the guide list? Ie.. punch in 235 and it goes to 235 from the channel I'm currently on? My tv remote will not allow this. I do not have a DirecTV stream box.

I have limited GB usage from my cable company. If I record a show on Directv streaming but do not watch it, will that impact my GB usage.  Or is it just in the cloud and will not impact my GB limit until I watch it.
