Watch downloads on your TV
View on TV through your video-capable iPod, iPad or iPhone
To watch your iPad, iPod or iPhone content on your television, you will have to purchase an option AV cable directly from Apple, the Apple Store or your localelectronics retailer that carries genuine Apple products. This cable can vary depending on your model, and it is important to purchase the correct one. You also must know if your television has component (preferable) or composite video input available before buying the cable. Make sure that if you have an iPad, iPod touch, iPhone, or older nano or classic that you purchase a genuine Apple cable, because they contain a chip which enables video playback through the cable. If you use a third party cable, the video will not work. Here are links to Apple’s website for the different types of cables:
Apple Component AV Cable
Works with all iPads, iPhones and video capable iPods, including classics, older nanos, and touches
Apple Composite AV Cable
Works with all iPads, iPhones and video-capable iPods, including classics, older nanos, and touches.
Once you have the correct cable in your possession, connect one end into your iPad/iPod/iPhone’s plug and the other into your television (match the colors of the cable plugs to the corresponding colors on the audio and video inputs on your TV).
