    My phone can't connect to my hisense hismart tv from the android TV app, so is there an app I can get on my TV that will display what's on my phone?

    Chromecast seems to be the obvious option

    What make of Hisense is the TV and what version of Android does your device run on?

    Some of the Hisense TVs have Miracast (screen mirroring) which should be on your phone.

    Yes, you'd need to buy the dongle... Then use the software. It's pretty cheap though.. I liked mine so much that I bought a second for our other TV.

    Got it working on my tablet but it won't work on my phone. Surely there's an app for that?
