New Pricing, passthrough

I just got the email about the new pricing.
So I checked the table at but did not find exactly what I was looking for.

We are on the Pay-as-you-go plan.

Currently we operate most of out streams in Passthrough mode, which costs us 0.15 dollar per hour for the server, while transcoding was 6.

That would mean a gigantic increase in costs for us. I did a simulation with that, and our bill would almost quadruple!

So what is the correct info?
