The YouTube App Isn’t Connecting To TV

If the YouTube app in your phone does not play the video on your TV, you will need to try a few methods to fix it.

Here is the first easy 4 things to do when YouTube does not connect to your TV:

1. When using YouTube in your phone, after pressing the small TV icon at the top right of the screen, it will give you a list of TVs that you can connect.

– Be sure you are selecting correct TV in the list.

2. Make sure the TV and the phone are connected to the same WI-Fi network.

– If your TV and phone are not connected to the same Wifi, there will be no internet connection. So, connect your TV to the same Wi-Fi with your phone and retry.

– Reset the Wi-Fi by unplugging the router for 5 minutes and try connecting your phone to the TV again.
