Plug [Q] How do I connect Moto G to television?

I want to be able to watch Netflix on my Moto G on the tv via HDMI but I'm not sure what cable I need.

I bought a micro HDMI to HDMI cable but that doesn't appear to fit.

I've had a look at Micro USB to HDMI cables but they all seem to say theyre for other devices like the Samsung Galaxies.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Moto G has no video output via cable. You can use DLNA or Miracast to wirelessly stream your media to your TV. If your TV does not support this, there are options like Chromecast(only works with some apps yet) or any Miracast HDMI dongle, that actually streams the screen and audio of your phone to your TV. I hope this helps, good luck.

I have tried Miracast to my LG Smart TV, utilising the hack on 4.3......

although it attempts connection, which shows via pop-up on the TV, it does not connect at least not for me.....

I will try again after I upgrade to KK....

apparently the screen cast option is available natively.

Honestly, use chromecast with Netflix.
