It counts as another device so you won't get the data free streaming

It depends on what you're asking.

 

If you're referring to the data free Mobile TV streaming feature, then @SamSam advice is correct.

 

If you're simply wanting to mirror your iPad screen with your TV - you'll be using the data included in your rate plan.

You have a few options.

 

First, you'll want to ensure that the iPad is connected to your WiFi network.

 

  • You can use an Apple TV and AirPlay content from the iPad to your TV
  • You can use a Chromecast to Cast content from the iPad to your TV
  • If you're looking for a cable method, you can purchase a lightning to HDMI adapter

Ah, I see I see. 

 

Using a HDMI cable is a fine. That wouldn't be considered as a separate.


If you're wanting to take advantage of free Netflix streaming, you'll likely be charged.

 

Mobile TV streaming is suitable for one stream per service on mobile and tablet devices only. Mobile TV will be streamed up to 1.5Mbps in SD quality

 

Potentially, if you set your stream quality to standard definition - you should be okay. I'd still advise against it.
