How do I get a movie on to my tv from my tablet, that's hooked up to an external usb hard drive?

I want to hook up an external usb hard drive to a tablet.
Play the movies from the hard drive on the tablet, stream the tablet to a television and have the sound coming out of a wireless/bluetooth soundbar.

What do I need and how do I do this? Please don't guess or assume. If you don't know, please don't answer. I've tried looking this up, but I'm not sure how to go about linking them altogether?

  • Well, do you have a smart TV or what?
    If not, does your TV has a USB?
    Does your tablet have an HDMI port?

  • Depends on the TV.

    • I need a Smart TV then?

    • I mean, I could always hook the drive to a pc, play it on the pc and run an hdmi wite to the tv and link it as a second monitor, BUT I want more versatility.

    • A smart tv is likely required.

      Older tv sets do not have the capability to read harddrives despite having a usb diagnostic port iirc.
