Unless the site you are streaming the videos from installs a dialer on your computer, then you're fine... if you have to dial a seperate internet connection just to stream the videos, that's when you should start to worry, if you're watching them through your normal internet connection then you are perfectly safe.

Only unless you agree to it you don't pay for it.

The only way you will pay for something like that is if your ISP Plan charges you for going over your download limit(if you have one) because streaming can eat up your downloads. Apart from that if your streaming off a website using your own ISP then there's no way of being charged.
