Windows 10 can use a television connected to a network as a display without any additional hardware or software by setting up a wireless display.   I can't seem to find a way to do this with a Macbook without using either an apple tv, chromecast or similar device.    Hard to believe that Microsoft has figured a way to do this easily and Apple doesn't so I figured the PH may have an answer where google has failed me.

I suspect the answer is something like "buy AppleTV"

Oh, right.

Odd that my windows 10 laptop does it with built in connect to wireless display.

The TV probably has some kind of streaming protocol to make it work. Figure that out and then see if there’s a way to do it on a Mac.

LG has an app for Apple devices but it is 10.00/computer/television.  With 30 mac's and 10 tv's that is going to cost a few bucks, even more aggravating since Windows 10 does it without an app for free.
