Devices you can cast Magine TV

You can cast from any device where the Magine TV app (iOS, Android, Chrome Browser) is installed as long as the Chromecast and your device are using the same Wifi connection. Even if you can’t play any stream on your device you should be able to cast the stream to your TV as the Chromecast will get the signal directly from our service and not from your device.

If you want to cast from your Computer you need to use the Chrome browser and the Chromecast Extension “Google Cast”.
