If you enjoy watching HCC sermons on your phone or computer, it may also be of interest that there are a few ways to view them on your TV as well (through a method called “casting”)…. with just a few steps involved! On this page we will look at the different ways to do so.
To “cast” a stream to your TV, you either need a SmartTV or a streaming device attached to a TV. There are a few streaming devices you can buy: At Walmart you can buy a Roku or a Google Chromecast (for under $50) or if you order off of Amazon, Amazon makes what’s called a FireStick. You also need WiFi in your home, since these devices run off of high speed internet. Streaming devices are very simple to use and offer easy access to services like Netflix and Hulu, among many others. Set up of the device is also pretty simple and they plug into an HDMI port on the back of your TV. If you have a SmartTV, this functionality is already built-in and no device is required.
When you “cast” media to a streaming device, it generally means that you pull up the media from your phone or laptop and tell it to play on the other device. Everything has to be connected to the same WiFi network for this to work.
On this page you will find instructions based on the different equipment you may have. Today I’ve put together a video of how to do it assuming you have an Android phone and either a Roku or Chromecast device attached to your TV. (iPhone instructions coming soon):
