Apple TV data usage

    Data that moves around your own home network is not metered. Only the data that comes in via your provider's internet modem from the internet uses your allowance. If you're streaming directly from the internet to your apple tv, the data coming in from the internet will use your allowance unless it's from one of your provider's unmetered sites. If you're streaming from storage on a device on your home network to apple tv, that is your private data, separate from your provider, and costs nothing.
