If you try to mirror or cast Jio TV with your PC or TV, you may see a message that “Screen mirroring or casting not allowed for this content“. The reason is because, Jio TV is only meant to be use on your mobile and not on any other devices. In order to protect third party copyrights, Jio officially blocked the running of TV apps on any other platform rather than mobiles and tablets.
There are many advantages for screen mirroring. The main advantage is getting a deeper view of things that you see on your mobile screen. For example Movies and Live sports events. Some providers limit the view of certain movies, channels and sports events only on mobile or tablets. So the users are forced to watch these events on their small display. This situation can be solved by mirroring your smartphone to a PC or a smart TV. Let’s explain this situation with a real world example. In India, there is a mobile service provider named Jio. They allows you to watch sports and local channels through their mobile app. These apps are not available for TV or cannot be used with android simulators like bluestacks. Working mobile network or SIM card should be there for watching the contents of Jio TV.
Since there is an option to mirror the screen with PC and TV, Jio team blocked usage of popular mirroring service and you can see only a blank display while mirroring the screen. This is usually happen when you mirror your screen using popular casting apps like team viewer. I personally tested team viewer for mirroring Jio TV to my PC and its shows “Screen mirroring or casting not allowed for this content” message. So here is the steps to bypass Jio TV screen casting restrictions and mirror any channels and events to your PC or smart TV.
