Ok, with the NFL season about to start, and the availability of live Thursday night games on the Verizon NFL app, I'm beginning to wonder if I can watch the games on my television.

I've done some searching and from what I've gathered it looks like I you can stream pictures and videos onto your television using DLNA, game console, etc. But that's only for personal files and some select video streaming sites. Am I correct on this point? or misinformed? Please confirm.

If we are in fact limited to personal files, is there a work around or accessory I can purchase to allow me to watch the live stream football games (in the NFL app) on my TV? Essentially I'm asking if there's a tv out I can use to mirror my phone screen on the television. I do have a WiFi connection and PS3 at home. Thanks

sadly, the only thing that the PS3/wifi will enable you to do is share your content via DLNA (iMediaShare, TwonkyMediaServer) but no streaming content. it must be content that's been saved onto the memory.

and no, there's no app you can purchase to enable live-streaming (via DLNA or desktop dock) with the Thunderbolt. other phones have this functionality (Bionic--for one, via HDMI, rumored) but i've yet to find any ROM for a rooted Thunderbolt that supports this full-mirror function, or any mirroring for that matter.

however, if you have a tablet, chances are it supports full mirroring to a tv via HDMI. for instance, my Thrive will run any content on the tablet display through the full HDMI to the connected tv--even if it's an app from the marketplace. i never tested it with NFL Mobile, but at least you know there's a mirror-capable device at the moment.

Didn't I just say it's not MHL compatible?
