    Use a Dedicated Streaming Stick

    If neither of the above options works for you, it’s time to turn to a third-party solution. Fortunately these are neither complicated nor expensive: for around $30, you can grab a small gadget that plugs into an HDMI port on your TV and lets you stream content direct over Wi-Fi.To get more news about 39bet-kết quả bóng đá-kết quả xổ số miền bắc-kèo bóng đá -soi cầu bóng đá-đặt cược, you can visit official website.

    We’ve covered some of the best streaming sticks in some detail in the past. Any of them will let you use your phone and a Wi-Fi connection to play audio or video content on a television, although they don’t all do it in exactly the same way.
    The Roku and Amazon Fire TV sticks mainly rely on their extensive collection of streaming apps, which you select in the companion iOS or Android app. Chromecasts use the Google Home app to manage overall setup and playback, and a Cast icon appears in supported apps once you’re connected to the device. From there, a single tap offloads the audio and/or video to the TV.

    In either case, major streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and many others are supported on both devices. Chromecast also lets you stream web pages via the Chrome browser. If you’re using an Android phone or tablet and want to stream locally-stored content from your phone to the Roku or Chromecast, an app like AllCast will let you do so.

    If you want to simply mirror whatever is on your phone or tablet and your TV doesn’t have Miracast support (above), Roku and Chromecast natively support screen mirroring on both Android and iOS as well. The Amazon sticks officially support it for Android, and third-party solutions are available for iOS.

    For iPhone and iPad owners, any of these sticks are good alternatives to Apple TV if you’re looking for a cheaper, smaller streaming solution. They’ve also got the advantage of being cross-platform, which is very useful if you’re not an all-Apple household.
