It is a shame that the neither the AFL app or the AFL website have the option to chromecast the streams.  The only method I can see to watch the games on TV is to connect a computer which is not ideal.

Hello my fellow Borough, also could try connecting the phone via a hdmi cable, this doesn't always work though, my phone which is last years model Samsung won't connect yet my friends with the same cable whose phone is 5 years old will... go figure. 

Once connected you don't know the difference, picture is as Con the fruiterer would say BEAUUUUUUTIFOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooOooooOOOOOO

I've played with a few options.

1. The best is, hooking up a laptop/pc to the HDMI on your TV.  Not too much can go wrong.  Its just annoying to have to fiddle around with the back of mounted TVs to that.

2. If you have an Android TV box or a device that supports Google Chromecast, you can use your computer in another room, and use the Google Chrome browser. Click on the three dots on the browser up on the top right, scroll down to 'Cast' and select your TV. 

3.  If your TV has a web browser app of some sort, browse over to vfl.com.au and try and access it through the browser.  I did that, but found that it was fairly choppy.

4.  (Advanced users only with an Android TV box).  Sideload the AFL Live app, then use the AFL app to access the content.

 

Bizarrely the VFLW.TV stream is far superior, both in picture quality and smoothness.  It is accessed via a different website, and its player can be Chrome cast straight to your TV (if compatible).

If I can work out a better wat to cast the VFL streams, I'll post it up here (in a new thread).

I don't even have a smart TV.......but I have a $100 notebook computer with a hdmi cable dedicated to the TV.....that way I stream literally everything without a drama.....just need a bluetooth keyboard and mouse next to you and off you go - easy peasy.

I reckon that is by far and away the best solution.

I have a surplus desktop PC in my TV cabinet that I purchased to watch THE MLB as I had buffering issues.  I use a Kodi with the MLB.TV plugin.  

I found yesterday that the AFL Video Kodi plugin from https://aussieaddons.com/ still works and you can watch the VFL games.

We are pretty much looking like last year, good pressure, good inside 50 entries but ball coming back out of there in a heartbeat. Pressure strong just when we played v Preston but need to do more inside 50. Given away a few silly frees and truth be told lucky to be only 2 goals down .

Welcome to out newest member and I assume another Port Melbourne fan (good taste) in cwport. Not a disastrous result today but room for improvement, our forward line needs a dose of viagra - looks impotent, just don't look like troubling our opposition this season.

Initial thoughts - we'll do ok cant see a 1 - 8 record  mid way through the season but way off the mark in being a top side. Ive been mistaken in the past (as my favorite poster often reminds me) hope im mistaken again.
