How to tell if your TV has DLNA to stream content from your phone or PC

DLNA technology allows you to stream content from your computer or cell to your TV using streaming over the Wi-Fi network. It is present in most devices - especially in newer ones - but there are TVs that do not have the capability.

Fortunately, the DLNA website (from the Digital Living Network Alliance) has a search engine for certified products. The online tool can be used by anyone who wants to know if their TV or smart TV has the technology, as well as who is choosing a model to buy. Here's how to use it in the following tutorial.
