Cannot cast prime video to telstratv via iPhone

As per title, all settings are ‘enabled’ on the telstratv to screen mirror, but prime video on my iPhone does not ‘see’ the Telstra tv powered by Roku. Why?
It sees the appletv in lounge room but not this. Why?
It renders the device more useless.
Basically the telstratv does Netflix and YouTube. That’s it.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

That's a restriction imposed by Apple as they use a proprietary casting technology rather than Miracast (which is an open standard used by most manufacturers).

 

Hence, I can cast my Samsung devices, my Windows laptop, my Linux PC, and my son's HTC U11 to the Telstra TV and see and hear what is on those devices.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

I think I’m at a point where I just need to choose a tech tribe and make sure it all works together. They all hate each other and result to us is nothing works cross platform.
I choose amazon for now. I’m sick of apple. Means I’ll be changing my phone from iPhone to android.
