Can I use cellular connection for apple tv instead of wireless

I don't have wireless at home, I have a huge cellular data package that I use as a hotspot for my laptop. Can I use that for Apple TV?

    Yes, you certainly can; when in "hot spot" mode, your phone functions as a W-Fi router. However, depending on your wireless provider's coverage and congestion in the cellular network, you may be disappointed with the data rate. To stream an HD movie requires a consistent 3-4 Mbps. Test your connection using one of the many free "speed test" sites so that you're not disappointed.
