Using a television in the FRITZ!Box home network

If your television has a network port or is equipped with Wi-Fi, you can simply connect it to a LAN port or the Wi-Fi network of your FRITZ!Box. The television can then access the internet and be used as a playback device for multimedia content such as photos, videos, or music.

Note:All instructions on configuration and settings given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for the FRITZ!Box.
