  • The biggest benefit of the i-Cast feature is to mimic smart TV features without owning a smart TV.
  • You can maintain your privacy while sharing photos and videos to your friends or family on the TV instead of giving them your smartphone.
  • Great for your friends to follow your game progress instead of struggling to view it on a small screen.
  • The other advantage is that you don’t need a Wi-Fi subscription or cables for this to work. It is wireless. You also don’t need data bundles for casting to work either.

But if you have data bundles or a Wi-Fi signal then you can enjoy streaming YouTube videos on the TV.

This exact tutorial also applies to the Syinix Digital Television. This is because Syinix and itel are brands that come from the same company, Transsion.

This is why the tutorial on the Syinix TV is exactly the same. Here is the video.
