Mobile Hotspot?

Can I set up my smartphone as a mobile hotspot,  so I can stream Directv Now to  my Chromecast device to be viewed on any television that isn't connected to WiFi without it affecting my data usage ?

Re: Mobile Hotspot?

Sure - any internet connection will work but it does use your data depending on what package you have with your cell provider. No idea what the performance will be based on your speed.

Re: Mobile Hotspot?

If you have an ATT wireless plan, you can use your phone as a hotspot, but data consumed on a Chromecast will be charged data (not sponsored).  Only DTVN data consumed (watched) on a mobile device is sponsored.  (Watching on a tablet connected to a phone hotspot would be sponsored, but nothing watched using a TV device would be.)
