How To Cast Twitch To TV
Learn how to cast Twitch to TV in less than 5 minutes. No matter which casting device you use. Here’s how you should do it:
One of the easiest ways to cast Twitch to TV is through the Twitch App. Casting to certain Wi-Fi devices is a new capability that Twitch just made available to their mobile app users. By opening the Twitch app on your phone or iPad, you have the option to connect to a Chromecast or other Wi-Fi-enabled casting device.
However, the Twitch app does not support casting to other DLNA devices like Amazon Firestick or a Smart TV. You also can’t open the mobile Twitch app with casting capabilities from your desktop or laptop computer.
Some phones or tablets come with their own screen mirroring feature. Allowing you to cast whatever is on your phone screen to your TV. But chances are if you took the time to look up this post, your device was not gifted with this built-in feature. Or maybe, you’d rather cast your favorite Twitch content directly from your laptop.

Twitch won’t cast to Roku
You may encounter some problems when trying to cast Twitch to Roku. Here are three possible solutions
Your Roku isn’t updated
Sometimes the issue is as simple as your Roku needing a little upgrade.
- Click the Home button and go to Settings.
- There, scroll down to System and choose System Update.
- Then, click Check Now and your Roku will search for any available updates.
Your Roku is configured to decline screen mirroring requests
You can fix that with a couple of clicks as well.
- Go to Home
- Then Settings and Screen Mirroring.
- Choose between three options – Prompt, Always Allow and Never Allow. You want to have one of the first two ticked off – otherwise your Roku won’t accept any screen mirroring devices.
Pick Prompt if you wish to be asked for approval each time a device connect with your Roku, and Always Allow if you want devices to connect automatically.
You’re using Roku’s native app
Roku has its own dedicated app that, among other functionalities, allows for screen mirroring. Wow – you may think – why do I need a third-party app, then? The thing with Roku’s own application is that it only allows users to display videos, photos and media saved on their iPhones.
So, you can forget about watching Twitch on your Roku-equipped TV! Well, that’s unless you get yourself our AirBeamTV Roku screen mirroring app, of course! With it, you can mirror anything that happens on your iPhone, iPad or MacBook screen!
How to Cast Twitch to Chromecast
AirBeamTV makes it super easy to cast from Twitch to Chromecast.
- Download and open our Chromecast Screen Mirroring app on your iPhone, iPad or Mac.
- AirBeamTVs app automatically starts looking for a device to connect to.
- Select your Chromecast.
- As soon as you’re connected, tap “Start Mirroring.”
Why Won’t Twitch Cast to My TV?
There are a few possible reasons you might have trouble mirroring your screen to the TV with AirBeamTV.
Access Denied on Smart TV
If you first connect your iOS device to your Smart TV, there will be a pop-up on your television screen asking you whether you allow for the connection. You can choose between “Allow” and “Deny”.
If you accidentally hit “Deny” on your Samsung TV while connecting your iPhone, iPad, or Mac. Luckily, this is pretty easy to fix:
How To Fix On Samsung Smart TV
E, F, and H Models (from 2012 to 2014)
- Go to Network > Allshare Settings > Content Sharing.
- Find the device you tried to connect. It should say “Denied” next to it.
- Select the “Denied” device and change it to “Allow”.
- Start the mirroring again from your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.
J and K Models (from 2015 to 2016)
Same instructions as above, but the menu titles are: Network > Multimedia Device Manager. From there you should be able to see your “Denied” devices.
M, N, R Models, and QLED (from 2017)
- On your Samsung TV, go to General > External Device Manager > Device Connection Manager > Device List
- From Device List, select “Edit” and select “All”
- Make sure the list of devices is cleared before starting the mirroring again from your iPhone, iPad, or Mac
AirBeamTV Mirror Receiver App
Before you establish your very first screen mirroring connection, you might have to install an AirBeamTV Mirror Receiver App on your Smart TV. This will allow your big screen to display the contents of your small screen.
How to install?
- Go to the AirBeamTV Mirror app for your TV brand.
- Establish connection with your chosen Smart TV.
- Once you click ‘Start Mirroring’, you’ll get a pop-up asking you to install the Mirror Receiver App on your TV.
- This should automatically trigger a reaction from your Smart TV; asking you for permission to install the app.
- Once it’s done, start screen mirroring!
Other Common Casting Issues
Here are some other common hiccups we’ve noticed can happen based on which phone, computer, or TV you use:
- If you’re using an iPhone or iPad with iOS 14, go to Settings, select the Wi-fi your device is connected to, and make sure “Private Address” is turned off
- On Mac, make sure McAfee (or another third-party Intel Security software) is disabled to allow your TV casting device to communicate with your Mac
- If you use a Samsung TV, make sure “Access Notification” is turned off; go to Settings > General > External Device Manager > Device Connection Manager > Access Notification
- If you have a Sony TV with Android OS, do a full power cycle reboot of the TV by shutting it down, unplugging it from the wall, waiting 5 minutes, and turning it on again
- If your LG TV is not detected, go to the Network menu on your TV and make sure “LG Connect Apps” (or “DLNA DMR” on older models) is always turned on
- Disable Access Point/Client isolation on your route.
- Disable Wireless Isolation on your router.
- Disable IGMP Proxy on your router.
- Disable any Virtual Private Networks (VPN) or proxy servers, on your router and your computer.
- Enable UPnP or Multicast on your router.
- Enable IGMP on your router.
Finally, do make sure that both the sending (in this case your iPhone, iPad or Mac) and receiving device (your Smart TV) are connected to the same wireless network! Otherwise, screen mirroring won’t be able to go through.
