Lead to connect IPad / IPhone to TV??

I have recently started watching sky (for footy) via my dad’s details on my phone / iPad.

It doesn’t link with google chrome which I have already, so can’t watch on my Tv

Is there a lead I can get to connect iPhone / iPad to to Tv so can watch footy on full screen?

Thanks

I'm pretty sure you can pick up HDMI adapters fairly cheaply on Ebay for this.

Yes, lightning to HDMI adapters are readily available, but they won't help with Sky unfortunately. If you try, you will get a message: 'not supporting HDMI out'. Sky's official position is "we don't support TV out on iOS or Android devices".

You can however use HDMI from a laptop or PC to watch Sky (e.g. Sky Go, or Sky Q).

If it helps, the lightning adapters do work very well with Sports Donkey (as does casting to Apple TV).

Hi James.

Will it work with the Virgin Media app? I Use my sisters Virgin for BT Sports, and she uses my Sky, I currently have it linked to my Ipad but would ideally like to watch the sports on my TV through one of these cables.

Sorry, so just to confirm I can watch Sky Go (app on my phone) on my TV via Apple TV?

I asked in Apple store and they said not possible...

You're better off with a Firestick IMO than Apple TV. Not done it with Sky but AirPlay works fine with Firestick you just need to buy an app

From my IT / Apple guru mate...

“Just tried to get sky go on my TV screen from my iblower via apple TV. No joy. Screen mirroring not supported. No ability to airplay...
Can't find a sky go app in the apple TV app store either... I just don't think what you want to achieve is what sky want to be achievable... They don't really want to make sharing accounts easy for obvious reasons.”

Do you have an Xbox? Works through that I think.

No, you can't.

As I said, the only way to watch Sky Go or Sky Q on a TV or monitor is to use a PC. Apple TV and/or Lightning to HDMI do not work.

If you want to watch on Apple TV, you have to use something like Sports Donkey with Matrix TV App on your iPhone (which works, but isn't strictly legitimate).

Except that isn't true. Games consoles work fine, and you can pick up an old Xbox 360 on eBay for £15
