Smart TVs have been all the rage lately, with new, shiny models coming out on a regular basis. However, you don't need to invest in a new television to enjoy your favourite content on the big screen, at least as far as new streaming service Binge is concerned.
Stream Binge with Apple TV
Binge is compatible with Apple TV. Launch the App Store and search for the Binge app. Once you've located it, tap the Install button on your remote and wait for the app to finish installing onto your device. Then, sign in with your credentials and enjoy Binge on the big screen.
Watch Binge via AirPlay
Watching via AirPlay is easy. All you need to be doing is watching Binge via the app on your iOS device. Then once you've begun watching something look for the AirPlay icon in the top right-hand corner, select it and then choose your Apple TV device. Please note that AirPlay requires you to already have an Apple TV.
Stream Binge via Chromecast
The beauty of Chromecast is that it's not restrictive on either iOS or Android devices like AirPlay is. Similar to AirPlay, you simply start watching Binge via the app and then once you're streaming locate the "cast" icon (it looks like this ) and tap or click it.
Stream Binge with Telstra TV
Telstra TV owner? Binge works with this as well. In the Telstra TV menu, go to the Apps Store, search for the Binge app and select OK. Next, select Add app and confirm. The app will appear on your home screen. All that's left to do is to log in, sit back and start watching.
Stream Binge with an HDMI connection
Don't have a media streaming device? You can try it the old-school way, by connecting your laptop to your TV using an HDMI cable.
Then, switch your TV to the appropriate HDMI input and your content should appear on the big screen. HDMI carries both video and audio, so the soundtrack will come through your speaker system as well.
Alternatively, you can connect a smartphone or tablet to your TV and do the same thing. Keep in mind that you may need an adaptor between your device and the HDMI cable such as a USB-C-to-HDMI or Lightning-to-HDMI convertor.
If you need help with setting up Binge on any of these devices or others, then check out our step-by-step guide. Otherwise if you're looking for more information on Binge see how it goes head to head with Foxtel or if it challenges Netflix.
