I know this sounds so simple to many of you, but I'm a 50 year old dude - not tech savvy at all!
So, I paid the $30 for the de Nations coverage this weekend. I know how to watch it on my iphone or on my computer, but how do I get that feed to play on my TV?

It's a smart TV - it's already got netflix, youtube, etc pre loaded on it. But for the life of me, I cannot find a browser anywhere on there to allow me to login to the MXGP-TV site?


Help.

If you get a google chromecast ($30 or so), you can play whatever is on your phone/PC straight to the TV provided you are running it through google chrome browser.

There may also be easier ways, but this works for me.

I use an app on my Roku called iWebTV. I downloaded it on my iPhone and on my Roku and it will mirror what I play on my phone onto the TV. I use it specifically for MXGP streaming. There is a web browser in the app that allows you to access the MXGP-TV site and then stream to the Roku stick.

I don't however know if the app will be on your TV.

Hope this helps!!

EDIT: There is also a paid version of the app that does not display a banner for what you are streaming on the TV. It was maybe $5. I paid for it just to get the annoying banner out of the way. This banner doesn't cover up the rider running order typically displayed at the bottom of the TV on MXGP races.

If it's a sony TV they have chromecast tech built into them (Most)

How has nobody suggested the easiest way...

U have a laptop or computer near the t.v.? Use a hdmi cord from laptop to tv and voila its on the tv.

I will see if that iWebTV app is available on my tv. If not, I don't mind spending the $30 for the chromecast thing.

What if I hook up a playstation to the TV? That has a browser feature on it, no?

I have used the hdmi from laptop several times. Crystal clear if you have good internet

If I'm healthy enough to complain. I shouldn't be complaining.

Another vote for the HDMI from the laptop. I also use Apple TV. Mirror from iPhone/iPad to Apple TV... perfect picture.

No matter what... test LONG before the race starts!!!

HDMI cable, yup. Along with nice blend of hot wings and beer somehow bring better definition too ;-)

I use Apple TV then mirror it from my phone.

Chromecast is prone to failure. Hdmi all the way.

Anybody download it as a torrent? If you have scetchy internet, I heard some people do it that way. But you have to wait until after the race, and also wait till someone posts it .....that's what I heard anyway

This combo seems the best option so far.

I use Apple TV, but it’s a cost if you don’t already have one. Have had MXGP-TV for the last 5 years it’s great.

I am an old school dude as well. I usually just plug my HDMI into my laptop and watch that way.

Is there commercials if I pay the 30 to stream it from MXGP-Live?
