    Streaming to Smart TV

    Hi Guys,

    Apologies if this topic has been repeated.

    I am looking at getting a Philips Smart TV. I'm looking at the "Powered By Android" 6/7 series TV in Australia.

    What I'm not sure about is if I can stream to any Philips Smart TV without having to buy a Chromecast or AppleTV. We have both iPhone and Android tablet in house. I ask because I never really find the onboard Apps like Netflix and Youtube easy to use? I also want to stream videos from other apps that aren't inbuilt (like 23 Snaps family photo and video sharing service).

    Am I flogging a dead horse on this one and do I need to fork out for a Chromecast or AppleTV with my new TV?

    TIA for any hints!

    Hi there,

    there are different TV's with different Options....
    What i can say, Apple uses a protocol (airplay) which isnt compatible with any other stuff out there.
    You need an apple TV hooked up with the Philips to stream from an "ixxxx" Device.

    For Android, you can do that via chromecast/miracast which is build in to lots of TV's.

    Thanks Thomas. We'll look for an option with inbuilt chromecast and use the Android tablet. Why waste cash on Apple TV is I don't need to!

    Totally agree with you daveo, chromecast covers all that and then some.
