How do I connect my iOS device to my TV to watch Netflix?
Below you'll find the different ways to watch Netflix on your TV using an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
With 30-pin devices, you can use a compatible composite, component, or HDMI cable connection kit to connect to your TV.
With Lightning devices, you can use a compatible HDMI connection kit to connect to your TV. More information on compatible connection kits is available through Apple's support site.
When using compatible connection kits to watch Netflix, you may notice a difference in how streamed and downloaded titles display. Streamed titles will utilize AirPlay, allowing the video to fit the screen. Downloaded titles will simply mirror your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch's display, so you may notice black bars surrounding the video.
You can link your iOS device to a Google Chromecast, giving you the ability to stream Netflix on your TV wirelessly. Follow the "Set up" steps on our support site if you need help setting up your Chromecast.
The Netflix app on your iOS device has the ability to sync to select TVs and streaming media players, allowing you to control your Netflix experience from your phone or tablet.
