Does using Apple TV to show movies originating from my macbook use the same amount of data on my wireless plan as streaming from the internet?

    No.

    When you are streaming movies from your laptop/computer/iPhone/iPad, you're only pushing traffic over your local network. You need to have a local wifi network in order to do the streaming. So doing this doesn't impact your wireless plan.
