Streaming TV from an IPad
« on: August 18, 2014, 08:56:58 AM »
Hi, can anyone advise how I can stream / cast Freeview TV ( UK TV) from an I-Pad to a TV using Chrome cast. Might sound a strange request, however where my TV is situated, I cant get a terrestrial aerial provided.

If you have BBC iPlayer you can cast BBC programmes. Not sure if other players like ITV Player, 4OD have Chromecast support though

Thanks for the quick reply, I knew about the I-Players but I was hoping there would be an app which have the full range of Freeview programs which then could be "cast" or "mirrored" to the TV. Hopefully there is a way.

I'm not sure what's on Freeview, but you could try TVcatchup from the Play Store, it does lots of programmes, and it's advertising isn't too intrusive, it does a pre-roll when you change channels, I think.

Edit - I just realised you are iOS, I don't know if TVcatchup is available?

BUZZ Player - native iOS media center can stream all type of video (including video from SAMBA/AFP/FTP/UPnP (NAS) server) to Chromecast - can do that.

It also support subtitle.

And it is free from 2014/11/25 to 2014/12/01.
iPad version: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/buzz-player-hd/id559707039?mt=8
iPhone version: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/buzz-player/id559706832?mt=8

Android version will come soon.
