Wireless TV data usage

I know that using Netflix and other streaming apps uses data, but does watching regular tv on a wireless tv box also use data? The past 3 months our data usage has been higher than usual and the only new thing would be the wireless TV box, and the network activity for the TV box is very high compared to our other boxes
