Hi Apple Core folks hoping you can help answer this question.

So my much better half and I were discussing getting rid of Comcast Cable and streaming via Airplay to our TV. The TV is a Sony OLED A8 and has Airplay capability which we use at times to stream videos from our phones. We have a triple play package, TV, Internet, and Landline phone which is never used anymore. The thought was to go to an unlimited plan for our phones, pick up an iPad or Macbook (since we need a new laptop anyway). Use one of the phones or iPad as a hot spot and stream apps to the TV and use some of the internal apps on the TV.

Anyone try this? Success? Drawbacks?

TIA

Are you talking about using that setup for watching TV and movies, or for music reproduction?
