Getting started

Before you can cast:

  • Make sure your devices are Chromecast-enabled. See Compatible devices, below.
  • The device you’re casting onto should be tuned to the same input that your Chromecast is plugged into (e.g., HDMI 1, HDMI 2).
  • The device you’re using to access Ignite TV – as well as the device you’re casting onto – must both be connected to the same WiFi network.
  • If you’re using an Apple device you’ll need to allow the Ignite TV app to connect to your local WiFi network when prompted. You can also turn this setting on/off by tapping Settings->Ignite TV->Local Network.

 

How to cast

  1. a) If casting from your phone, launch the Ignite TV app.
    • If you don’t have the Ignite TV app you can download it from the App Store or the Google Play Store:
       Google Play  App Store

    b) If casting from your computer or laptop with the Google Chrome web browser go to the Ignite TV website.
    • If you don’t have the Google Chrome web browser installed on your computer or laptop, download Chrome here.
  2. Sign into Ignite TV with your MyRogers username and password.
  3. At the top-right corner of the page (or on the screen playing your content), select the cast icon. 
  4. Choose the device that you want to cast to from the WiFi-connected devices listed.
  5. Select the content you want to watch (disregard this step if you started casting directly from your playing content).

 

That's it! Your selection will start casting on the device you chose in step 4.

How to stop casting

To stop casting, simply follow these steps:

App

  • Go back into Ignite TV on the device you’re casting from.
  • At the top-right corner of the page (or on the screen playing your content), select the cast icon. 
  • Select Stop Casting.

Computer/Laptop

  • Go back into Ignite TV on the device you’re casting from.
  • At the top-right corner of the page (or on the screen playing your content), select the cast icon. 
  • Find the device you are casting to in the list displayed. With your mouse or trackpad, hover over that device. You’ll see the Ignite TV label change to Stop casting. Select Stop casting.

Your content will begin playing on the device you’re using to stream Ignite TV.
