However, you can cast from your phone to stream Max on a non-compatible TV.
How To Cast Max on your LG TV?
If you don’t have the feature to install and use the Max app on your LG TV, then you can use it on your phone and cast it on your TV.
You can do that from Android and iOS devices, but ensure you have already logged in to your account before you do that.
From Android Device:
This feature is available on all Android devices, but you should know that the names be different. You may see Screen Share, Screen Cast, Miracast, Wireless Display, WiFi-Direct, Wireless Projection, etc.
If you don’t know how to cast your Android Phone screen to project content to your LG TV, follow the steps below:
- First, turn on your LG TV.
- Then, click the Screen Share option from the home menu.
- Now, on your Android device, open Settings and find the screen share option there. You may also find that on the notification panel.
- Then, it’ll try to detect the TV, and the process might take some time to complete.
- When you see the name of your TV on your phone, tap that.
- It’ll initiate the projection process, and you can see the status on both the TV and phone screen.
- The process will be completed within a few moments, and you’ll see your phone’s screen on your TV.
- You can start watching Max on your Android phone, and the video will be cast to your LG TV.
Casting the screen differs from Android as iOS devices have the AirPlay feature that helps you cast the screen.
If you haven’t done that before, these are the steps for you:
- Ensure the share screen is on your TV.
- First, open the Max app on your iPhone and play anything.
- Then, click on the screen to reveal the controls.
- At the top of your screen, immediately left to the volume slider, you’ll see the AirPlay icon; click that.
- A new window will pop up where you need to select LG TV.
- Your iPhone screen will appear on your TV shortly.
If you want to discontinue that, turn off AirPlay on your iPhone, and in the future, if you want to do that again, repeat the steps.
