Netflix has become the go-to streaming service for millions of people all around the world, thanks to its vast library and ease of use. While most smart TVs have the Netflix app built-in, there are still some older models that don’t. But don’t worry, you can still connect your phone to your TV and watch your favorite shows and movies on the big screen.

Before we begin, it’s important to note that this method will only work if you have signed up for Netflix’s basic plan or higher. If you have a mobile-only plan, Netflix will disable native casting on its mobile app. Additionally, using other mirroring apps will fail to show video. That being said, this method will work for both Android and iOS devices.

To get started, sign into the Netflix app on your phone and find what you want to watch on your account. Once you’ve found it, tap on it to play it on your phone. When it starts playing, tap on the screen to see your playback controls. Then, tap on the cast icon in the top right corner. The icon won’t appear if Netflix doesn’t detect a device it can cast to.

If you can’t find your TV, make sure that your TV is set up for mirroring. While some newer smart TVs have built-in Chromecast support or other casting/mirroring technology, older TVs might require an additional dongle for wireless mirroring or casting. If you haven’t mirrored or cast something to your TV before, consult your manual or Google your particular brand and model of TV to see what you might need.

Should all else fail, if your phone has a USB type-C or Lightning port, you can try plugging it straight into your TV via an adapter cable. However, support for this feature varies from model to model.

In conclusion, connecting your phone to your TV to watch Netflix is a straightforward process. As long as you have a compatible TV and a Netflix account, you’re good to go. Happy streaming!
