How to connect Mac to TV Wirelessly?

We are going to discuss two different methods in this guide. You can use the first method if you have an Apple TV and if you do not have an Apple TV then we recommend you to use the second method to connect your Mac with a TV.

As we described these methods for wireless connectivity, you do not need any extra tools or equipment. Both methods are very simple to follow and will only take 5 to 10 minutes to connect Mac with a TV.

Method # 1: Connecting Mac with Apple TV

The first method of connecting Mac to tv that we are going to discuss is for Apple TVs. For this procedure, you need to turn on both your Apple TV and Mac. You might need to adjust the settings or have to set up an account if you are using your Apple TV or Mac for the first time. You may be asked for some details to create an account on both devices. You might need to provide your name, email, password, region, time zone, and other related details.

You also need to give all the permissions and agree on terms and conditions if you are required to make an account. If you have already set your account on TV and Mac then you can skip this part. After all things and the account is set up, we can move forward. You need to locate the settings on your Mac. If you are unable to find the settings you can also search in the help or find bar available on the system. Once you have entered the settings of Mac, you need to find a tab with the label ‘System preferences’.

In the system preferences tab, you will see an option of ‘display’. Click on the display option to open it. After you have opened the display tab, you need to select ‘TV’ from the list of available devices that your Mac can be mirrored to. Your Mac is now connected to Apple TV and now you can show the screen of your Mac to a larger audience through a bigger screen of your TV.

The next and second method that we are going to discuss in the list of how to connect Mac to TV wirelessly is used for other smart TVs that are not manufactured by the Apple company. The first step of this procedure is that you need to turn your smart TV and Mac on. If you are turning both devices on for the first time, you might need to create an account to move further. We explained all the details of creating the account in method number 1.

After settling the problem with accounts, you need to make sure that your Mac and smart TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi so we can move forward. You need to open the mirroring app on your Mac which is known as AirPlay. Now you need to look at the available list of devices that are ready to connect. Find the name of your smart TV and click on it to connect your Mac with the smart TV. You can also adjust the settings in the application accordingly.

There are different softwares for different brands of smart TV such as you can use Smart thing app for Samsung, Air beams TV app for Sony, and many other apps that are available on the internet and you can download via the app store or the play store. You just need to consider which apps are compatible with Airplay that comes with Mac.
