- A laptop with Wi-Di capability (rather new)
- A network connected monitor
This combo will work, but not all machines and TVs are compat.

Other than that you would need to get a hardware solution like ChromeCast or something like that, but your TV would need to have a USB input (not for Servicing, but an actual USB interface for data).
