Default [Q] Any luck with screen casting?

I am thinking of going with the T-Mobile $70/month unlimited data plan as my sole source of internet for a while, but they only allow 2.5gb of tethering, which will be plenty to send work emails and browse, but not enough for Netflix, so I need some way to cast my Moto G screen to my laptop (or maybe a cheap tv) without any external WiFi network. I'm under the impression that Chromecast needs an external WiFi network (please correct me if I'm wrong), what are my other options?

You can use:
Wifi Direct, Miracast, DLNA, Chromecast
You can't use:
HDMI, MHL

If you have a DNLA enabled device, like a 360/PS3/SmartTV, you can use an app like Skifta to stream from your phone to it
About Netflix,you'd better try miracast,or open netflix website on your laptop[using the phone as a router]
[i dont have a cromecast,but AFAIK nothing prevents it from connectomg to you phone if you sharing your wifi]
