Depends on the stream rate, normally 128 to 320 Kilobytes per second, that channel or app uses. But if you assume a low end 128 Kps "If you download an internet radio transmission that comes in at 128 Kilobytes per second for 60 minutes then you will have used 57.6 Megabytes of data in that 1 hour."

Higher(better quality) stream rates will increase your bandwidth usage accordingly.
