5 accessories to connect a smartphone or tablet to your TV

5 accessories to connect a smartphone or tablet to your TV
We've all been there, lounging on the couch with our phone or tablet and wishing we could stream videos from the internal storage, Netflix, YouTube and so on to the largest screen in the house right in front of us. 

It is not a seamless task, as there are no universal standards yet, both for doing it with a cable or wirelessly, but there are some accessories out there that make it possible.

Wireless streaming is, of course, preferable for our lazy ways, but we don't mind the occasional cable snake if the mobile device can be hooked that way for cheap, or if the wireless sees too many interruptions, as is often the case. 

There are DLNA streaming boxes for the wireless part, in case you don't have a DLNA-capable TV, and adapters for almost any kind of port for the wired way, so check out a few of them in our slideshow below to know what you are in for when considering a TV hookup on the cheap.

I already have a HDMI port on my LG Optimus 2X-in, and LG's high-speed HDMI cable was in the box. Well now you throw a bunch of money on the HTC, Samsung and Apple as though LG has a much better solution...

It's cool. We also released the first Mad-in-China HD DLNA adapter for non-DLNA HDTVs. For further info about this exciting product see our portfolio site especially for DLNA products as below:
