While many of our customers stream directly on their desktop/laptop monitors, many others enjoy working out in front of their TV. Below are some suggestions for projecting video streams onto your TV! Please note that all approaches below are based on mirroring the screen or browser of a computer or a mobile device (system requirements apply).
Mirror through a mobile device - iPhone / iPad device owners
- Option 1 - If you also own an Apple TV, you can use AirPlay to wirelessly mirror your device's screen and audio. Note: if you can see video but don't hear audio after following the steps in the guide, try these two troubleshooting steps.
- Option 2 - Connect with a cable. Use one of Apple's Digital Audio/Video (AV) Adapters to connect your device to a TV via any standard HDMI cable (e.g. AmazonBasics). Links to the two adapters are provided below (make sure the top of the adapter matches the cable that you currently use to charge your iPhone/iPad device).

Casting from a mobile device - Android device owners
- Primary option: If you also own a Chromecast, you can cast your Android screen by following these instructions.
Mirroring from a laptop / desktop / PC
- Option 1 - Connect with a HDMI cable. Most laptops, desktops, or PCs have a HDMI port that looks like the following:
If you have one of these ports, it's as simple as connecting a HDMI cable (e.g. AmazonBasics) to your TV!
If your MAC has a Thunderbolt 3 / USB-C port, then you can purchase a USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter to mirror your screen to a TV via a HDMI cable.
If your MAC has a Thunderbolt 2 / Mini DisplayPort, then you can purchase a Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter to mirror your screen.
- Option 2 - If you are a Windows user, use the Chrome browser, and own a Chromecast device, you can cast from the Chrome browser directly. See this webpage for more details.
