Thread Details

this probably isn't the right place for this, but here goes: i picked up a Chromecast for $25 (thanks to http://slickdeals.net/share/android_app/t/8360039), but it doesn't do what I thought it would. I have unlimited data on my (Verizon) cell and without going into a ton of detail, I won't have wifi for about 3 months or so. I was hoping I could cast the hulu/netflix directly from my cell, but that's not the case with the Chromecast since it requires wifi. Verizon doesn't allow tethering, so i can't use foxfi anymore or use my phone as a hot spot. Does anyone have a workaround for this or a suggestion on a device that can do what I'm hoping for? Worst case, I guess I'll just watch TV on my phone, but my eyes are begging for a better solution. Thanks so much in advance for and helpful suggestions!
