Casting to TV

Why can't I stream from any Android device?  I'm in my own home and am very frustrated that you're blocking my ability to stream to my tv from a tablet or phone.

the producers of material don't like 'casting' at all but using a PC (not smart device) and using the TV as a 2nd monitor existed before all the regulations so use by a PC is grandfathered in on the laws. Smart devices are not grandfathered. Connections to TVs other than PCs is how cable companies make their money/income. currently many models of Roku are in a free beta if you have a device to use. HD won't be available if you do not have a billing line for HD technology for $9.95/month (HD included in contract and no charge will not 'allow' HD on Roku).
