I want to watch videos from my phone on the tv. It's a basic Vizio flat screen TV. My phone is LG G Stylo. I know about connecting through HDMI but Icant figure out what kind of wire to get that will plug into my phone. Can anybody help me??
It doesn't seem that your phone is MHL compatible. That would allow you to connect a USBc to HDMI converter.
If you can use your phone as a Wifi hotspot then you could connect a streamer (Roku, Firestick, etc) to the TV and access the internet that way. You might need a different data plan for your phone.
