If you have Windows 10 (and a couple versions prior as well, I think), you can also "cast" what's on a Laptop or Desktop to your TV, meaning you can watch anything you can get onto your computer screen on the TV screen, but once again, it requires some third-party intervention like a smart TV, Roku, Chromecast, Firestick or Blueray player, etc. The advantage of that is the ability to fetch things directly from a web address. If you have a membership with some site or you can use it to retrieve podcasts and videos from places not available via Roku or other 'smart' device. You can find the "how to" with a web search of "how to cast computer to tv".

Thanks, I'll try some of those things. I like the fitness videos but don't like watching them on my computer screen and trying to work out in my (small) office.

I have a couple of the DVD's but I am so tired of juggling dvd's, channels, remotes, etc. I would much rather stream them for easier accessability.

Hi,

Generally, videos can be streamed to a smart TV if you have a Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, or FireTV, etc. Exactly how to do that depends on what it is you have in your home tv/network. Or, if you get youtube on your TV, you can access our SparkPeople channel on youtube and watch our videos that way.

I hope this helps!
