So I'm about to purchase a new mobile contract with Optus with included TV streaming included, I was wondering if anyone knew if this would be able to be tethered to any/all of my remote devices around home and still be streamed on those devices for free?
I normally sit in the toilet and leave the door open, I like to watch my 65" TV screen in the living room, I'm already doing it now - and not receiving any usage alerts, so just wanted to ask.
Once I have got over the horrible picture in my mind off you watching your tv I will go on to confuse you with my answer.
There has been a lot of discussion on this forum with regards to streaming tv from you tethered device with no definitive answer. The thoughts are if you just mirror your screen no problem. Where there could be an issue is when you are using a device like Chromecast which connects directly to the streaming server and not through your phone.
My advice would be to keep a careful watch on your data usage and to remember the data usage figures which Optus show are often hours behind.
