How can I get this to a TV?Will the Roku 3 do the trick?
You can use a Chromecast to stream whatever you can see on a web interface.

So, I noticed that the Roku has some type of "casting" ability, but how does casting from a hand-held device really work in terms of resolution? (I don't think it is for me in my little apartment with a laptop connected to a 720p TV. There, having a 720p phone would not be an issue.) But if I were to get one of the sticks for travel, would the phone limit the "cast" material to 720p even when I connect to my sister's 1080p TV?

Thanks for the info. I did find something that mentioned this and now I totally understand.
