Watching on your Smart TV will largely depend on the model of your TV. Certain models will allow streaming without any issues, but others might not, which is why we normally recommend using a computer, laptop, tablet or another device to enjoy your content.

To see if your TV does have streaming capabilities, play the video on your phone or tablet first. In the corner of the video, you may see a streaming icon, (looks like a rectangle with half circles on it), tap that icon and a window will pop up with your streaming options.

If your SmartTV is set up for streaming, you will see its name in those options. If you do not see that streaming icon or your TV is not listed in your streaming options, it may not be set up for this feature.

Note that we will not be able to provide troubleshooting or technical support for your casting device.
