Connect my Galaxy Tablet A to my hdmi on Jenson tv?

I would like to stream netflix movies from my tablet to my tv. I'm not very good at this stuff and wonder if anyone else does this and what do I need to do it? Which cables, etc. Oh, it is not a smart tv.

Try chromecast

I just use Chromecast for this function. The dongle for the TV is $35 available at Walmart, Staples, Best Buy. You will need a good internet connection. For the RV I use a Ubiquiti nanostation and it's Airstation wireless router.

Are you streaming over a cellular network? If so, I hope you have an unlimited data plan.

With unlimited data (or perhaps the Ubiquiti equipment mentioned by @Bocamo) you could purchase HDMI adapter (search Google or Amazon) and an HDMI cable (assuming your TV has an HDMI input).

If your TV has an HDMI input jack....

Buy a USB to HDMI cable to connect to your tablet.

There seems to be an endless list of conversion cables available. So it will depend on what kind of inputs you have on your TV.

Here is one site. NOTE: I have never ordered anything from them. There are probably other options available. Audio Video Cables, Extenders and Control Devices | C2G

streaming

the ubiquiti antenna and wireless router mentioned above is for amplifying and using the parks' wi-fi. All my devices then just log into the local network in the RV. The cost is less than $100.

The benefit of using something like Chromecast is that it is wireless. Your tablet can be next to you for actions like pause. Also it gives you choices from the internet such as Netflix and Amazon prime.

I don't believe Galaxy Tabs have USB connections - at least I've never seen one that does. The Galaxy Tab HDMI adapter is what the OP wants.

The ubiquiti stuff is great if the park has WiFi - not so much if the park doesn't have WiFi.

Chromecast is pretty slick. Of course, it requires WiFi to work.

I would bet if you use the campground wifi for this you will be cut off or blocked as a good number of them limit bandwidth and do not permit streaming.

I carry a laptop with a HDMI port to hook to my tv in our MH. That allows me to use my laptop as a dvd player, or to play movies that I had already downloaded. Our tv is a smart tv, but we do use chromecast on some TV's at home that are not smart TV's. My son set up their smart phone so it can play through chromecast to play movies, as they have an unlimited data plan.
If you don't get the answer you need here, do a google search for hooking up your tablet to your tv without wifi there are some web sites out there that show how.

Netflix hopefully you have unlimited data. I found downloading movies was easier/faster ahead of time.

I use my Note 5 to download movies at home. Then I have a Sony Blu ray player with screen mirror built in. I connect the DVD player to the tv, connect my phone using quick connect (wireless) AKA screen mirror and watch my movie. Granted I can't do anything on the phone while the movie is playing but it's generally late at night and/or raining so I don't need to use it for anything else.

I have this Sony https://www.walmart.com/ip/Sony-BDPS...&wl13=&veh=sem
