This is very surprising and great news for us to learn about Apple being announced that it will bring AirPlay 2 and HomeKit compatibility to several televisions this year. Manufacturers like Vizio, Sony, LG and Samsung will be the first ones getting AirPlay 2. For its new TVs will have iTunes built-in that allow customers to rent/buy a movie/tv shows. If you already have one of manufacturers mentioned above less than 2 years old, it is most likely you will get an update sometimes soon and should be able to see AirPlay 2 support. AirPlay 2 will allow customers to use iPhone or iPad to click it to connect to HDTV then watch a video.
