Whatever the reason, here are a couple of suggestions to try:

Streaming Media Players

Both iOS and Android phones can use devices like Roku, Amazon Fire TV sticks, and Chromecast to cast content to your TV.

First, your phone and streaming device must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Then, you can open a streaming app on your phone, choose a video, tap the Cast button, and then select your streaming device from the list.

Direct App Casting from Android Phones

Some Panasonic TVs allow you to cast directly from phone apps, including the likes of Netflix and YouTube. To do this, connect your TV and phone to the same Wi-Fi network, open a video in your chosen app, tap the Cast button, and then select your TV from the list.
