FOX HD shows are typically around 6-7 GB/hour where I live. Fox uses 720p
which requires less bandwidth than 1080i.
ABC HD also uses 720p, but their shows are smaller where I live, because
they reprocess the MPEG shows to have a lower bitrate. They do this so they
can sell bandwidth to other companies and make some money.
