Streaming Computer to TV, without internet speed loss.

Steam link would be a great option :-) Miracast would also work. Or a hdmi splitter to you computer, though that would require a long hdmi cable.

So here's the situation I'm in, my modem is right next to my computer, and my computer connected directly to my modem via ethernet, has an internet speed just fast enough to watch Netflix/Stan/Popcorn Time. My lounge where my TV is connected to the wifi, has an internet speed to slow to use Netflix/Stan/720pYoutube. Is there any way I can stream content to my TV from my PC, but keeping the internet speeds my computer has? Say streaming what the computer sees, as opposed to the service on the wifi network? I'm not sure if I was clear in my explanation, if you have any questions feel free to ask. Thanks in advanced for any help :)

 

Note: Netflix isn't released here in Australia yet, I say my internet is fast enough to watch it, because it's fast enough to watch Stan, I assume if my PC can watch Stan (Basically like Australian Netflix) it can watch Netflix also.

Steam Link is for games, what could I use to watch, netflix or popcorn time?

 

Edit: Don't worry did some research and it is exactly what I'm looking for, thanks very much! :D
