Wirelessly connect Android phones or tablets to your TV 

Chromecast

If you have a Chromecast device on your TV and its on the same wi-fi network as your phone or tablet then you should see the cast icon on the Couch to Fitness video player. 

If you select the icon, it will then bring up a list of devices that content can be cast to. Simply select your TV and the image will be displayed.  

If you can't see your chosen video on the TV, then try returning to your TV's home menu and cast again. 

Amazon Fire TV Stick 

Go to the Settings menu on your Fire TV Stick.  

Select Display & Sounds followed by Enable Display Mirroring.  

On your phone, select the screen mirroring option (not every phone and tablet will have this) from the quick-access menu.  

Select the Fire TV device you want to connect with. 

Other devices have their own screen mirroring apps

Huawei - MirrorShare

Samsung - Screen Mirroring or Smart View 

HTC - HTC Connect 

Sony - Screen Mirroring  LG - Miracast

Wirelessly connect iPhones and iPads to your TV

If you have an iOS compatible TV on the same wi-fi network you should see the cast icon when you start a Couch to Fitness workout video. 

Once you've tapped the icon, you simply select the TV you want to cast to and your content will display on the screen. If you can't see it, try returning to your TV's homepage and cast again. 

Connect your phone or tablet to your TV with a wire  

If you don’t have wireless mirroring or casting you may be able to use a wire to achieve the same result. 

You’ll likely need a cable that converts your phone cable to connect to your TV’s HDMI port. 

See this guide to wires that connect phones or tablets to TVs.
