After testing how much data Youtube and Vimeo video use, I tested BBC and CNN videos as well. If your data plan is limited, like me, you will want to know how much data videos are using (since they consume the most data) so you have an idea of how much you can watch a month without paying extra.

Like the test for Youtube and Vimeo video, I use NetLimiter to measure data use in BBC and CNN video.
Again I use a video that is one minute long.

For BBC, I use this video: Ebola in 60 seconds
For CNN, I use this video: Octopus leaps out of water, grabs crab

Both CNN and BBC don’t have a normal and HQ quality.

Data used per minute
11.01 MB
10.5 MB

As you can see, BBC and CNN video takes about 10 mb per minute.
