Trying to cut out cable tv / broadband -- HOW?

So, like so many others, I'm sick of paying $200 / month for cable tv and internet. I've got unlimited LTE data on my phone, but I'm limited to only 5gb tethered. What I'd like to do is, rather than create a hotspot, mirror my phone onto a TV so I can watch tv with my family along with the fact that I won't have to watch everything on a tiny screen.

Initially, I thought miracast was the answer. I went onto ebay and bought a $20 Measy A2W dongle. This device uses the EZCast app. Good enough… until I try getting it to work. It's buggy and laggy. Plus I couldn't find a way to use my phone to grab cellular data and push it to the device.

I then tried Chromecast, and it isn't working either. I learned shortly after hooking it up that it's going to stream data via my home wifi pulling its data from my cable modem, rather than what I was hoping to do. So if I cut the cord with my cable company, I am going to lose the broadband and therefore lose the Chromecast streaming.

So what gives? How exactly can I use my cellular data (non-tethered) to put what's on my LG G3's screen onto the television? I can't believe that it's really that hard. Am I missing something obvious?

Thanks in advance!!!
