How to cast from and to a Peloton


The Peloton bike and treadmill come with a large screen to watch live exercises. As the Peloton is a connected device with access to WiFi, you may wonder if it is possible to cast from and to a Peloton. Is it even possible and how to do it then? This is what this article is all about!

Can you cast or mirror a Peloton to a TV?

You can cast the Peloton screen to a TV as long as it supports Miracast. Some TVs support it natively like many Samsung TVs or the TCL “Roku TVs”. If your TV does not support Miracast, connect a Roku or Fire TV stick to cast your Peloton. Chromecast and Apple TV don’t support casting from Pelotons.

If your TV does not support Miracast, you can buy a Roku TV stick here on Amazon or a Fire TV stick.

If you cannot cast with your model of TV or don’t own a Miracast dongle, you can also download the Peloton App which is compatible with many TVs. You can also download the app on your smartphone and then mirror it to your TV. In that case, you will also be able to use Apple Airplay or a Chromecast. Indeed, though the Peloton app on the bike and treadmill does not support Chromecast, the mobile app does support it.

Please note that by definition casting an app means displaying the app on the other screen without the need to have it opened on the host itself. What the Peloton does is mirroring, meaning the application is displayed on both screens at the same time.

How to cast or mirror a Peloton bike or treadmill to a TV

  1. Make sure the Peloton and TV are connected to the same WiFi.
  2. Tap the top right corner to make the top bar appear
  3. Click on Settings.
  4. Click on Cast Screen.
  5. Click connect on one of the available devices.

Your Peloton is now casting directly to your TV. If your TV does not support Miracast, I recommend buying a Roku stick like this one. The procedure described above is the same with a Roku or Fire TV stick.

If you have an old Peloton or one not updated to the latest firmware, the procedure is different. Here are the steps to mirror your Peloton screen to a TV:

  1. Make sure the Peloton and TV are connected to the same WiFi.
  2. Click on More.
  3. Click on Settings.
  4. Click on Display.
  5. Click on Cast Screen.
  6. Click on the 3 dots in the upper right corner.
  7. Check “Enable wireless display”.
  8. Click on one of the available devices to start mirroring.

As you can see, the procedure is much easier on the latest Pelotons.

Alternative method: directly from the TV

Instead of casting from the Peloton, you can launch the Peloton app directly on your TV by following these steps:

  1. Download the Peloton app on your TV, Roku stick, Fire TV stick, or Apple TV.
  2. Launch the app and register to your account.
  3. Launch an exercice from your TV instead of the Peloton.

Alternative method: casting from the phone

Another way to cast the Peloton app on a big screen is to install the app on your smartphone and then cast it to your TV. This is the same as casting any other app from your phone to the TV.

This method has the advantage to work in your current environment without the need to buy additional hardware. In particular, this method allows you to cast to Chromecast or Apple TV.

Indeed, though the Peleton bike and treadmill do not support the Chromecast or Apple TV natively. Your smartphone does. The smartphone can then be used as a remote which is super convenient.

Can you cast to the Peloton screen?

It is not possible to cast directly from a computer or phone to the Peloton. However, it is possible to watch videos on it thanks to a hidden web browser. Thus, you can watch directly Youtube, Netflix, or any other streaming services without having to cast it from another device.

Please note that when you “cast” to your Peloton, your running or cycling metrics won’t show up. The Peloton does not support overlays. You can ride but without having visual feedback.

If you are interested by watching Netflix or Youtube directly on your Peloton, I recommend you read this article I wrote on the topic. It will also tell you the consequences of doing so on your Peloton.
