Projector Blog: Streaming Netflix movies and series from the internet on a projector.

Quite frequently we get asked for a projector with Bluetooth, Wifi, features that some projectors do have but most times we find people mean they are after a projector that can stream movies and output audio which is not always the same thing. At the point of writing this there are a handful of "Smart Projectors" that can do it on their own so we have put together a guide on easy solutions to get streaming now!

Many projectors do not have media players or smart features inbuilt so you would have to get these features from an external player or device so that you can stream movies, series, or sport from the internet with Wifi or a wired lan connection. Some of these devices also have bluetooth audio and or physical audio output connections. Some do not have an audio output and are tricky to set up with a projector.

Which Streaming device?
There are many streaming providers (E.g. Netflix, Kayo, Binge, Stan, Foxtel, Apple TV+, Disney+, Prime Video etc. ) it is best to make sure the particular provider you are after will be available on the streaming device of your choice.
Compatibility is always evolving but at the time of writing this an example would be that Kayo Sport will work Chromecast, Apple TV, Android TV, or Telstra TV. But not others like Fetch TV, Amazon Fire Stick, Xbox, PlayStation etc.

Audio
Most projectors will not have audio out so it is best to make sure the device that you are streaming from does have some form of audio output. The projectors that have audio outputs will will often only output basic stereo or even mono audio as sound processing is not a key feature of projectors.
We would recommend to find a device with an audio out to match your setup. Chromecast does not output audio so can make an installation tricky. We would recommend an Apple TV box or Amazon fire Stick which have Bluetooth Audio, Fetch TV or Xbox have Optical audio out so are also good options.

Recommendations
Very often we find people are stuck with a the age old Chromecast doesn’t have audio out problem then they are trying to find expensive work arounds to make the $60 Chromecast work in their setup. We would recommend to get a streaming device with audio out many of which are pretty affordable:

  • Amazon Fire Stick - Bluetooth Audio output ($69rrp)
  • Apple TV Box - Bluetooth Audio output ($249rrp)
  • Xbox, Playstation, Smart Bluray Players, Fetch TV - Digital audio out. (various pricing)
