Does Apple TV take over the streaming on Airplay?

Hi folks, I have the BT Sport app which allows me to watch live BT Sport channels and is compatible with Apple TV Airplay.

To use this I need to open the BT Sport app, start the sport I want to watch and then choose to display it on my Apple TV. I can then exit to the home screen and put my iPhone to sleep and the video will continue to play on my tv.

My question is; is my phone still streaming the data and throwing it to the Apple TV box, or does the Apple TV box take over the streaming and therefore free up my phone from excessive battery drain?

Many thanks..
