Looking for an answer to stream Netflix . Only internet option I have is my phone. Have a Lightning to HDMI adapter that will play anything on my phone but Netflix . It says its not supported ? Do I have to have a special Netflix compatible cable ?
That said if you data plan is on the low end you will run the risk of a high bill. All cell company's have a cap. After you reach that they slow down your date rate. Example is my data cost after i go over is 15 bucks per GB. Yours could be less or more.
The adapter that you have all it can do is send out some H264 video down a Lightning cable and hope that something on the other end can convert it to HDMI. The Lighning cable can not handle raw HDMI signal. I am not sure Netflix will even steam like you want since it is DRM protected stream without an apple TV. But you can try it.
