Are you looking for a way to watch Netflix on your projector from your iPhone? With ViewSonic’s smart projectors, it’s easy to do just that. One of the most popular features of these smart projectors is screen mirroring, which is supported on both iOS and Android devices.

However, it’s important to note that if you try to screen mirror Netflix content, you may run into some issues. This is due to copyright licensing that Hollywood has put in place, which doesn’t allow for mirroring of their content. They want you to use an approved interface, such as HDMI.

But don’t worry, there is a way to install Netflix on the projector itself. The ViewSonic projectors have an app store called Aptoide, which is an open-source version of Google Play’s library. While it doesn’t have full Google Play functionality due to licensing, it does offer versions of many popular apps, including Netflix.

To get Netflix running on your ViewSonic projector, start by navigating to the app center from the main menu. From there, you should see Aptoide and any other apps you’ve already installed. Aptoide is pre-installed on all ViewSonic projectors, so it should always be your first option.

Once you’ve opened Aptoide, you’ll see a variety of different options. Netflix is one of the most popular apps and is typically found in the editor’s choice section. Navigate to the entertainment section and then to Netflix to install it.

Simply click the installation button, and the app will download and install onto your projector. Once it’s installed, you’ll be given the option to open it. From there, you can sign in to your Netflix account and start watching your favorite shows and movies on the big screen.

With these easy steps, you can enjoy Netflix on your ViewSonic projector from your iPhone.
