It is possible that the wifi signal from the apple tv is stronger than the wifi signal.  ie. the communication to the tv causes a signal degradation to the iphone.  Do you have a dual band wifi router?  If so set one of the devices to operate on the one frequency and the other on the other frequency.

@sweetfa2 - that's a great answer, I hope it works, if not...

You may have other routers that are competing on a single channel. You may want to go into your router settings and set the channel to either 1 or 11 as most router are 6 by default and, as I understand it, can cross talk with neighboring channels eg. conflict between channel 6 and 7.

This trick can really improve performance for routers in a densely populated building such as a condo.
