The only way I know to cast media to the Telstra TV is to use Miracast. With Mircast you can use the Telstra TV as a second screen for your PC or to duplicate the PCs screen. There are instructions for using Mircast on a Windows 10 PC here
On the Telstra TV make sure Mirroring is set to Prompt or Always allow
Settings > System > Screen Mirroring > Screen Mirroring Mode
