Mirroring your smartphone

The TV is then searched, the phone sends a video address to the TV, and when the TV receives the file, it starts playing.
Your TV can then be fully controlled by your phone.
Use the “TV box” function of your LG 65SM8200PLA 4K UHD
No need to pay cable or satellite to access additional programs.
Generally, Smart TVs are able to work with an integrated decoder: there is no need to buy a separate decoder.
This saves you money.

External storage with reading function
A USB stick or mobile hard drive allows you to download a video file to your computer, copy it, and play it on your LG 65SM8200PLA 4K UHD from this external media.
Video over the internet is often not very smooth when network conditions are not good.
