TV without broadband


I am a single with two small children (4 and 18 months) and I am wondering if we need internet. I have access on my phone, at work and at my parents house but I would like there to be some options with TV.

What are my TV options without Broadband?

    Technically, if your TV or set top box has WiFi, and you can use WiFi tethering on your phone, you could get on demand that way. But you would need to be careful about the data being used.

    Or you could do on-demand on your phone, and cast/screen share to your TV, if capable, but data may still be a problem.
