Background Audio Only - Data Usage

Background Audio Only - Data Usage

When using audio only in the background (i.e. listening while using other apps), is the video feed still technically continuing in the background and therefore using additional data? Thx.

it is the same stream but if you are in the home connected to your home internet then there is no 'charged' data while 'listening' to linear channels or recording playback or on-demand programs.
