Connecting note 5 to TV without Internet

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Anybody know how to connect a note 5 to TV without using Internet? I don't have Internet or WiFi at home.  My slim port I used for my old phone doesn't work. Would like to watch Netflix and Hulu on my TV using my phone.

I too read that the note 5 doesn't support mhl. Today I bought the amazon fire stick and it allows me to mirror my phone to the TV without using internet. I initially set it up using the hot spot on my phone. Once set up, I turned the hot spot off and selected screen mirroring on the fire stick and connected my phone to the fire stick using quick connect. It works and I'm super excited.

Use a Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter (MWDA), available from Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, or others. The phone connects directly and wirelessly to the MWDA. No router is needed. This is my screen mirroring device of choice when visiting grandparents - they have no WiFi / router, and I can still mirror what's on the screen of my Galaxy S5 to their TV by plugging the MWDA into HDMI and USB connectors on their TV.

As noted by others, Google's Chromecast device requires use of a wireless router.

Is this still correct for a sprint Note 5 32GB brought in 2016, all i want to do is mirror it to use the screen and back up. Just like you said. Dont care about streaming apps, that's what all other searches bring me to. Nobody else  anywhere confirms the simple mirroring, other then you and that samsung link, but it's pretty outwieghed  by those forums saying it doesnt work. (for what they are trying to do atleast)

 

Also is it nessecary for it to be the smart adapter, or would a well reviewed mhl adaptor cord work aswell. Im looking at this one. I'll probably only use it this one time so id like to keep it cheap but will still work

I know superman means well and has a link to samsungs support site but the note 5 does not support mhl AFAIK. http://www.mhltech.org/devices.aspx

 The only way I know you can pair your note 5 to a display without Internet is if you have a samsung smart tv that supports screen mirroring else, purchase a Microsoft wireless hdmi adapter.
