How do I watch on my TV?
- How to Connect Your Device to Your TV
One of the easiest ways to stream a title on your TV is to connect your laptop, phone, or device to your TV with an HDMI cable. Depending on the type of computer and device you have, you may need a different cable or adapter:
Windows PC: Most Windows computers have a dedicated HDMI port. In this case, you will need a simple HDMI-to-HDMI cable.
Mac Laptop: Newer Mac laptops like the MacBook Pro will need a special cable or a special adapter that you plug into a regular HDMI cable. Older Mac laptops will have a dedicated HDMI port or a Thunderbolt 2 port.
Android: Modern Android devices use USB C connections, which are compatible with Thunderbolt 3 connections, so you can use one of the above cables or adapters.
After you’ve connected your device, you may need to adjust the display settings on your laptop or device. First, select the correct HDMI input with your TV remote. Then:
On a Mac Laptop: Go to the Apple Menu. Open System Preferences. Click on Displays. Make certain that the box that says "Show mirroring options in the menu bar when available" is not ticked.
On a Windows PC: Go to Settings. Go to System. Go to Display. Make sure TV is selected. You can also adjust the resolution to match the one of your television. Go to Audio and make sure TV is selected as well.
