Can't wach through HDMI

I have been watching on my PS4 with no problems, I then go see my family for the holidays and take my laptop, so we can watch Now Tv together, I download the app, use the web browser and nothing. I can not watch Now Tv on my TV using a HDMI from my laptop, however, I can watch just using my laptop (no HDMI)

 

I have looked at the forums and nothing has helped, it makes no sense that this should happen. I am hoping there is a fix to this as the online browser AND the app do not work with the HDMI cable attached through laptop.

Windows 10

Re: Can't wach through HDMI

Hi @Anonymous User Hope your having a good christmas,

 

It is not possible to connect your laptop to a TV via HDMI to watch NowTV this is like this on purpose. The app has settings built into it to prevent extenders and 3rd party devices being used. There is no plans for this to be changed that we are aware off.

 

 

Thanks

Eddie

Thank you for your quick reply.I am not happy with that at all, but guess I just have to accept it.
Looks like I will be dragging my PS4 around with me.

@Anonymous User it may be possible if the TV is effectively your monitor. I know other services which don't work with HDMI work if the TV is your monitor as opposed to sending to the TV via HDMI.
