Step 3: Sign in, activate, and configure your account
You can skip this step if you are already logged into your Peloton account. If that’s not the case, then log into the account before doing anything else on the home screen.

Wait for a few moments until your TV is turned on. Make sure your TV is connected to the same WiFi connection as your Peloton bike and your TV is compatible with casting. Also, check If your iPad or iPhone is connected to the television if you have an Apple TV.
How to Cast/Stream Peloton to TV
Great! At least your TV and Peloton bike are now turned on and connected to the same network.
Finally, you are at the stage of casting or streaming Peloton on your TV. Follow these steps accordingly and your Peloton app should be running on your TV –
Step 1: Go to settings from your Peloton touchscreen
Go to the settings bar from the Peloton bike’s screen. You will find it on the down-right corner of the monitor. You can configure the basic options from the settings bar. This is needed to make the overall casting process faster and easier.
Step 2: Click on the display bar
Once you are on the settings, go to the device option. There you will find the display button. Hit the display bar and proceed to the next step.
Step 3: Hit cast screen bar
Now it’s time to cast the screen. The option for casting the screen will be on the third section of the display option. Enter the section and you will find another 2 options to mirror the screen directly to the television.
Alternatively, you can click on the menu option that is on the top right corner of the screen. You will find the cast screen bar from there. Either way, click on the option to cast the screen on your TV.
Step 4: Hit the 49° TCL Roku TV bar
Inside the display, you will find a 49° TCL Roku TV bar that enables streaming your Peloton screen on the TV. You need to make sure you find this option inside the display bar.
Otherwise, something is wrong or your bike and TV are not connected to the same WiFi network. After clicking the 49° TCL Roku TV bar, wait for a few moments.
Step 5: Check if your TV is properly mirroring or not
If you have successfully followed all the steps from 1 to 4, your TV should be mirroring the Peloton classes. But there is no harm in checking whether or not it is casting properly. When it is taking too much time to load the casting, you can assume there is a problem.
Turn off the WiFi and then reconnect. You can also reboot the WiFi router for proper connection. If it is still not working, then redo the step from 1 to 4 after rebooting the WiFi.
Step 6: Enjoy casting your favorite classes on TV
If there is no issue in casting the screen and the TV is properly mirroring it, then congrats! Now it’s time to enjoy some online classes on a large screen instead of your standard Peloton screen.
Make your home workout more enjoyable with your friends and family members by casting the same Peloton lesson on your smart TV.
Aside from regular cycling lessons, Peloton offers a lot of interesting content such as yoga, weight lifting, strength training, boot camp, meditation, and etc. It will be more fun if these lessons can be viewed on a TV or larger screen rather than the small Peloton screen.
Fortunately, there are ways to cast these lessons on your smart or Apple TV so that one or more people can perform a particular workout. On top of that, you don’t or can’t remain sitting on the bike to participate in other types of classes, which concern a yoga mat more than your Peloton bike.
