Almost all modern televisions support a way to connect to devices wirelessly: a kind of wireless hdmi. depending on your tv, you might see it called anyview or miracast, or just plain old screen mirroring. you’ll need to have both devices connected to the same home network, but that’s likely already happened.

android the exact process for anyview cast differs between brands of android phones. Look in your device settings for terms like screen sharing, dual screen, or screencast. tap that option and you should see a list of TVs to select and stream.
Option 3: Upgrade to a Smart TV
Smart TVs come preloaded with many of the same apps on your tablet or smartphone. Instead of accessing your content on a separate device and linking it to your TV, the TV itself can connect to the internet and play the same content. Apps such as Stan, Netflix, YouTube, Freeview Plus and more are available on the Hisense Smart TV range and can be controlled via the TV remote.
option 4: hdmi cables
The humble hdmi cable is the easiest way to connect a device to your television. most laptops have an hdmi port; If they don’t, they most likely have a USB-C or DisplayPort output, both of which can be converted to HDMI using an adapter. iphones & iPads will require a Lightning Digital AV Adapter which converts the Lightning port on the bottom of your device to HDMI. Some Android devices come with a built-in HDMI port, but most will require a USB-C to HDMI adapter. If your Android device uses Micro USB instead of USB-C, an MHL (Mobile High Definition Link) adapter is needed.
option 5: third-party devices
chromecasts, appletv, fetchtv, android tv: there are dozens of set-top boxes that can make it easy to view all kinds of content on your television. Mac and iOS users will appreciate the ease of streaming content from their device to an Apple TV, which then displays the video on the TV in seconds. chromebook and android users can cast all of their phone content to a relatively inexpensive chromecast.
