I'll share what I use however.

While I do use EasyTether I can't offer support for it. Also, your mention the TV but the speed of the cellular network is too low to watch films so that's not a great option.

Thank you Bob..over the years you have helped me immensely...Can you walk me through this or recommend where I would start. Thanks. My internet is so bad at times I am out of service for I depend on my phone to get emails and at times to do searches...e.g. the last 3 days I had no hydro and my only contact was my cell phone and my car to recharge my battery. Thanks again.

It's on the usual places.

The Android market or google's new Play store.

It's what I use from time to time where there is no other choice but as noted, it's not speedy enough for a film. I felt it's a great thing to have in a pinch.
