Since June 2014 - learning something new all the time
That’s what we use for streaming TV when traveling.
We download some programmes too, just in case the 3G is a bit slow

Can’t wait to see how you get on with this.
Last time I used ours to watch Moto GP I got sound but a frozen picture.
Had to watch it on the phone :mad:

Worked ok at home though so guessing it was a data issue speed wise.

I've got the Apple version. Does the same thing.

Be aware that some apps won't permit connection to an external display. SkyGo is one prime example, there are lots of others. Some will work with certain content but not all - iPlayer, Amazon Prime Video.

If this happens it's not a fault with the cable and it's not an Apple (or Android for that matter) device issue.

It's a restriction by the app developer who usually cite licence issues.

Do you happen to know if the same happens if you try and play the content through a browser on your phone instead of through an app?

Though for the price I'll get one anyway for the stuff that it does work on.

Depends on the service provider I think. I don't think it's possible to access all of them via a mobile browser.

There are other ways around it though.

SkyGo for example will support external displays if using a computer/laptop. It needs to be a real one though, not a glorified tablet. Also where Xbox and Playstation versions of an app or service are available they obviously support external displays.

Bought the Apple one last week in Spain which cost 50 euros, connects the iPad to the tv. Watching BBC iPlayer through TunnelBear VPN and works very well.

Bought one in Portugal for €35. Felt a bit ripped off but it worked-for a while.
I was able to watch BBCi player or live BBC tv using Tunnel Bear. But after disconnecting it to move to another site, when I connected it up to iPad it wouldn't work but it did connect to iPhone 6. Unfortunately, don't have Tunnelbear or iPlayer on iPhone. Lead doesn't work with ITV or Channel 4. Get sound with those but no picture. Same thing with Amazon Prime.
Don't have Netflix.
