Beware if you want to stream on demand!
I bought this adapter with the intention of connecting my ipad to my tv and streaming apps such as Lovefilm, BBC iPlayer and 4od. I bought this adapter with the intention of connecting my ipad to my tv and streaming apps such as Lovefilm, BBC iPlayer and 4od. Be aware that none of these applications will work when connected via HDMI to a display. You will receive a notification that states the app does not support.
Possibly ignorance on my part, but to me, this was a big plus point of buying the adapter in the first place. I contacted 4od and received the below response when I asked why there was no support:
"Unfortunately the reason Airplay no longer works is that we don't have the rights to broadcast all our shows using Airplay, so this feature is not enabled."
Hope this helps. …

But if anyone can help? …

Works Well With iPhone 6 Plus
Saw an article in Yahoo about this adapter, bought one and tried it out on my mother-in-law's 60" Samsung TV. A little pricey ($49 Saw an article in Yahoo about this adapter, bought one and tried it out on my mother-in-law's 60" Samsung TV. A little pricey ($49 + tax) but worked great. Was nice for iTunes, photos & videos with sound. Her eyesight isn't very good (she's 94) so this was much better than when we would show her stuff on an iPad. Will be getting these for my kids for Xmas as they have iPhones and iPads. …
