Do you have to have WiFi to watch a stored movie from iCloud

The only wifi I have is on my iPhone and my iPad Air. No wifi connection at home otherwise. I use wireless places in town to download movies to my work iPad mini but no wifi on it unless I use one of my other devices as a hotspot. I want to watch these movies on my tv and I'm trying to decide if the Apple TV is the route to take. Will I be able to use it properly without having wifi at home?

  • Yes. Apple tv doesn't store movies inside it is all streamed and so therefor wifi is needed. Also, you can't airplay a movie from your iPhone or iPad to the apple tv even though you may have downloaded them to your device and this is because wifi is needed to access airplay
