What phones from ATT that are not hundreds of dollars can I use for MHL from my phone to a tv to play my videos, saved programs remotely.

I RV I have comcast and can tap into my dvr and play back saved programs, on demand etc onto my computer or phone. I want a phone to do this while I"m on the road in the RV. It is not a smart tv so I'll need a connection hard wired from the phone to the tv....I've heard this is called MHL. Which phone that is inexpensive and usable with a plan to do this?

Hello, @cellphoneuser00,

 

Thank you for reaching out. For information on what devices will work with MHL you will have to reach out to them.

 

Have a great week.

Lol. I assume that ATT help thought that MHL was like NHL ( National Hockey League) or NBA ( National Basketball Association) NFL, Etc.

For reference, MHL stands for Mobile High-Definition Link is an industry standard for a mobile audio/video interface that allows the connection of smartphones, tablets, and other portable consumer electronics devices to high-definition televisions.

Unfortunately it is a standard which is excluded from most modern smartphones sense 20 13 or 14

It's pretty clear that AT&T help does not even know what MHL means.

Just to put you out of your misery there hasn't been a Android phone of any kind in the United States that has been made with MHL in five or six years. The last device that I had that was actually capable of it was a Samsung Note 8 inch tablet (2013). I had no trouble hooking it up to my TV and streaming DirecTV now, data free TV.
(FYI, it over heats the device)
Pretty much the only thing that is available that you can still hook up using a cable to a TV set to mirror the screen is iPhones.

None exists. For reasons already explained.
The only way to cast Android to a large screen would be with a home intetnet/Wi-Fi service, which is going to use your home internet data.
