How do I use an USB OTG cable?

I recently purchased a USB OTG cable so I could stream games to my phone (an Alcatel OneTouch Fierce, but upgrading to Z Ultra in a few months) from my PC and use my 360 controller to play them. Problem is that my phone won't recognize the wireless receiver for the controller. When I plug it in the light that signals that it's getting power doesn't turn on. I checked my phone to make sure it supports USB OTG and sure enough, it does. I know there is nothing wrong with the USB OTG cable, the wireless adapter or the controller because this whole setup works flawlessly on my brothers Nexus 5. Is there some software issue causing this? I've seen other people online use the Xbox controller with this phone so I know that it's possible. What should I do?
