It's not easy to know exactly how much bandwidth you're using by streaming video from sites like those, because the rate of conversion, quality and algorithm can all play a part on the size of the video. For a long time, a great number of Fansubs released ~170 megabyte episodes that typically ran 20-24 minutes and had respectable quality. Once you upload it to a streaming site, that quality is reduced by quite a bit - after all, the idea here is to reduce the size of the video enough that you CAN stream it with some level of decency.

With that said, I highly doubt it that a 25-minute video from, say, Youtube, is 150 megabytes. My wild wild guess is that it's much lower than that, probably in the 20-50 megabyte range tops. I'm fairly sure you can find information on the conversion rate for the popular streaming sites elsewhere on the Web if you're really interested.

For a 24 minute video on Youtube, the file sizes should be something like the following:

Youtube 360p x264 FLV: ~120MB
Youtube 480p x264 FLV: ~170MB
Youtube 720p x264 MP4: ~375MB
