Can I Chromecast IMDbTV from the app on iPhone X to my Phillips smart TV? So far every time I try to the broadcast carries the audio, but the image on the TV simply displays a message saying my program will begin shortly.  Advice will be deeply appreciated.  Thank you!

Hi Grant,

Can you confirm whether you are using the IMDb mobile app or the Prime Video mobile app while using Google Chromecast?

 Hi, Taylor!  

It’s very good of you to reply so soon.

I was using the IMDb mobile app, or rather I was trying to, with Google Chromecast.  I’m using the current version of the IMDb app on an iPhone X running the current iOS (13.3).

Video and audio from the app plays beautifully on the phone, and I’ve enjoyed several films and shows in that way.  Only their audio, however, reaches the Phillips smart TV through Google Chromecast.  The television screen remains black except for a message in the lower left saying the program will begin shortly.

I’m sorry if I’m repetitive or giving you unnecessary detail.  I only mean to be as clear as possible.

Thank you very much, Taylor, for any suggestions or advice.

Hi Grant,

Would you mind providing a screenshot from your mobile device with the "cast" option displaying? 

I don't believe casting to Chromecast is supported (or even an option) on the IMDb mobile app so consider me intrigued. 
However, have you tried using the Amazon Prime Video mobile app to view the "IMDb TV" section and cast the desired content to your Chromecast?
