0 Shares

The screen on the Peloton bike is great. I like it’s size, resolution and position. Even more, I love the quality and variety of content. Everything from cardio, running, meditation, yoga, outdoor running, sleep, hydration and strength training videos can be found on the platform.

The native Peloton bike screen is the best way to consume cycling-based content. However, other types of videos can be best enjoyed on other screens. So how do you stream Peloton to TV or another screen with ease? 

Peloton can be streamed straight from the bike to a TV in several ways. One, you can use the Miracast feature on the Peloton bike display to mirror the screen to a TV that supports screen sharing with a wireless connection. Two, you can use a chromecast to share the screen from your peloton bike screen/ peloton mobile app(iOS/ android) to TVs that do not support screen sharing. Airplay allows you to share your peloton iOS app screen to your Apple TV. There are also Peloton apps available for free download straight from your Roku, fire, Android and apple TV boxes.

This article will show you exactly how to stream and access Peloton content from your TV, mobile phone (Android+iOS), personal computer or tablet.
