This is a question best asked of your TV provider.

Danokra, thank you so much for this wonderful question. We want to make sure we can provide you with the correct answer. If you're streaming TV through your phone on the cellular network, that can eat up a lot of data pretty quick. As Bearone21 stated, we would suggest streaming TV while you're connected to Wi-Fi. This would help with saving your cellular data. Does this make sense?

Thank you for your response so I guess I woud need to be in range of my wifi and streaming to watch my t.v. on my S9.  What about doing t.v. viewing away from a wifi and using my data.

Great question, DANOKRA. You can watch TV on your phone with cellular data. As long as you have a data connection you can use apps available to watch TV through your cable provider.

Yes, if your cable provider allows it. If it does not, you could always look into a provider such as YouTube TV

If you mean my provider it is the one preinstalled on the S9 which is google chrome I think.  If you mean my Verizon plan I am not sure which it is but it has a lot of data included and unlimited phone.

I have Frontier as my cable FIOS provider, but what if I am not near my Frontier WIFI devise. Can I directly use a Verizon stream like I can do a non wifi phone internet connection.
