How do I connect an Xbox One S or X to a smart TV?
The Xbox One S or X can be connected to a smart TV by following the instructions below:
Samsung smart TV
Just like PlayStations, the Xbox One S and X each come equipped with an HDMI cable. Simply hook up to an HDMI TV port, and you’re good to go. Samsung smart TVs, particularly the QLED model, automatically recognize the Xbox when plugged in and switches to the input source for you. If it doesn’t, simply click “home” on your remote and select the source.
LG smart TV
Xboxes connect to TVs without AV cables. All you need is the HDMI cable provided in the box to connect the console to your smart TV. Connect one end of the cable to the Xbox and the other to the LG TV’s back. Use your remote to click on the corresponding input source, and you’re set to play.
Toshiba smart TV
XBoxes are one of the easiest consoles to set up. They come with an HDMI cable that plugs into the back of the TV and an AC adapter that plugs into the wall and powers the Xbox. After plugging in your console, hook it up to the HDMI TV and change your input source.
TCL smart TV
XBoxes come equipped with HDMI cables that plug into any TV with a port. Plug your Xbox into the wall to power it up, and connect it to the TV using the HDMI cord. Change your input source on your TV and you’re good to go.
Vizio smart TV
XBoxes come with HDMI cables to easily connect to any TV. Power on your Xbox by plugging the AC adapter into the wall, then plug the HDMI cable into the TV, the other end into your game console. Change the input source on your TV using the remote.
