    Default Mobile phone to tv cable?

    Father in law wants to watch movies /videos etc from his phone onto his tv. He isn't very tech savvy (70's) and so am asking the best way for this to happen?

    Phone is a sony xperia e4.

    Tv is a Samsung smart tv (
    UE32D5520 32" Full HD LED TV).
    Any thoughts?

    Chrome Cast.
    Much easier than fart arsing about with leads and shit. I know someone had a MHL HDMI Lead and it drains the fuck out of his battery. Barely lasts 20 minutes - even kills the battery while the phone is on charge.

    Bought the Chromecast - £22.99

    Didn't want to spend anywhere near that, but if it is the best thing for the job and easy for a 70 a year old to use then so be it!
