Projectors are becoming increasingly popular as they offer a cheaper, portable, and easier way to watch movies and TV shows in our comfort zone.
In this current generation, there is so much improvement in projection technology that they are replacing TVs in many homes. Even some sports bars and commercial businesses are using projectors for events.
So, can you watch Netflix on a projector with all these features and capabilities without copyright problems?
As many projection models are available, almost all of them require a third-party streaming device like Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, or Chromecast to watch it.
Can You Watch Netflix On A Projector
Yes, you can watch Netflix on smart projectors with built-in Android operating systems that will enable you to watch Netflix without any external streaming device.
Different Methods To Watch Netflix on Projector
There are multiple ways you can watch not only Netflix but other apps like Disney+, HBO, and ESPN, on the bigger screen using a projector. The most popular methods are:
- Connecting With a Streaming Device
- Getting a smart projector
- Using a laptop
The first method is connecting with external streaming sticks like Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, or Chromecast. This will enable you to watch Netflix and other apps on the big screen with some restrictions on them.
First, connect these third-party sticks to the HDMI port at the projector’s back. You will also need to connect from a power source.
After connecting the streaming device with the projector, go to the projector’s menu and change the input source to “HDMI.”
Also, you will need an active Wi-Fi connection to connect a streaming stick to surf Netflix or other applications.
There are two Amazon firesticks available to choose from: an HD firestick, and another one is a 4k max firestick with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels.
In this method, you will need a smart projector with a build ram, storage, and an operating system like Android or Aptoide.
This software lets you download apps like Netflix, Hulu, and HBO, which run without connecting to any external streaming stick.
One disadvantage of having these smart projectors is that they are more expensive than others projection models.
If your projector does not have a wifi feature, then you need to connect the laptop HDMI port to the projector HDMI port to view Netflix on a bigger screen.
Now open Netflix on your laptop and press the Windows key + P. A menu will pop up, and you can select the “Duplicate/Extent” option to view it on the screen or wall.
You will need to select Airplay on your MacBook display during this process. Next, you have to open the Netflix app on your MacBook and click on the Airplay icon on the right side of the menu bar.
You will see there are multiple available devices. Select the right one from which you need to select the projector.
I hope the above method helps you to watch Netflix on a projector. According to our recommendation going with the smart projector is always a smart idea to eliminate third-party devices.
But still, if your projector does not have a wifi feature or does not support viewing Netflix due to copyright, then there are still multiple ways to view it, as explained above.
