Watching a movie stored on my PC on my TV

I don't know if I have X1. This board kinda came up by default. I just got Comcast/Xfinity when I moved two days ago. I had U-Verse at the old place. I had an Apple TV box on HDMI2 on the TV. HDMI1 was U-Verse. I could open iTunes on my computer, switch to HDMI2 on the TV and watch a movie stored on my PC on the TV in the living room. My question is, how do I do that with this new service? Everything is WiFi. The gateway (?) talks to the TV in the bedroom, my computer connects to both of my printers wirelessly, I can watch TV through the browser on my PC, and I can watch shows and movies through the app on my iPhone. The one thing I can't figure out how to do is watch a movie (.mp4 file) that's on my computer on the TV. Thanks for any help you can offer.
