Is there any way to AirPlay from my iPhone 4s or iPad 3 to the new Apple TV without a wifi network? Like for presentations.

It seems like it should be easy enough to create an ad hoc network (sans internet) with any one of these devices and have a very portable presentation system, but I can't figure a way of doing it short of turning up Personal Hotspot service on my iPhone and paying for the mobile broadband fees. Or carrying a router with me.

  • As far as I understand, AirPlay needs a Wi-Fi network but not an internet connection. So if you turn off data connections when you turn on your personal hotspot, you shall not encounter any mobile broadband fees.
