We have two phones on the 55+ LOYALTY UNLIMITED PLAN.  This says it has unlimited data.  Can we use our mobile hotspots for internet streaming for apple tv? and is this included under the unlimited data plan?

It will not be a good experience since mobile hotspot is limited to 600 kbps.  

Mobile Hotspot Capable

Get unlimited mobile hotspot to use your capable smartphones and tablets as Wi-Fi hotspots at no additional cost. Maximum tethering speeds at up to 600 kbps.

We are in an area that old ATT DSL is our only option for internet and it is very sketchy, in and out alot.  Does Verizon have a product that we could use for streaming?

Even the more expensive unlimited plans are limited to 15 GB, 30 GB for the most expensive get more plan.  This will be used up quickly streaming video.  Bucket hotspot plans are expensive and wouldn’t make economic sense for cable cord cutting.  

You can try using a hdmi converter from the phone to the tv and stream at 480p unlimited.

Mobile hotspot on discounted/entry level unlimited plans are useless. Nearing 2020 and those atrocious speeds belong in the 90's on an AOL CD-ROM.
