    Do you have a newer (smart) tv? I'm not sure about the HTC phones having Miracast support or not, but Microsoft makes a Miracast dongle (adapter) might be something worth looking in to.

    Do you only have just a phone and a tv? No computer? There's several streaming solutions such a PLEX, if you have a PC to set up the server on.

    Basically, we need to know what your tv is capable of.

    Hi I have a Samsung plasma smart tv.
    Well you're in luck! I'm not familiar with HTC phones like I said, (they might have a proprietary app just for this), but I'll recommend PLEX again, and set it up on your phone as a "mobile server" in the settings. Other than that, there's several ways (and apps) of doing this using DLNA.

    Here's an article on the subject that may help
