How much data does the ABC Player app use on the iPad 3G?

ABC Player streams video when connected to a 3G cellular data network. We ran an independent test to see exactly how much bandwidth the ABC application would require.

The latest episode of a television show was selected as soon as the full menu loaded after starting the ABC app. Streaming video totaling 21:24 minutes (not including advertisements) was played continuously during the episode.
