Samsung TV mirroring issue

Hello, I'm having an issue mirroring live soccer from the bein connect app to my Samsung TV. I can stream the matches on both my Samsung Edge 7 and Samsung Tab A , however, when I try to mirror it to my Samsung Smart TV it goes thru the ad and then doesn't show the match. Not sure why that is when I would imagine you should be able to mirror whatever is being shown on your device. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I'm reading where blocks are being put in to stop this.

There are news articles about blocking certain live feeds (Periscope, etc.) so it's untrue that you should be able to mirror everything.

It appears that the technology is there but the stake holders don't want you to do this.

Thank you for the response, it's a shame that as a consumer I have to be limited to where I watch my programming. Might have to look elsewhere .

Wait, did you write it's "my programming"?

So this is not some periscope or "one of those" feeds?

It's something from your cable, ESPN or such?

I'm running into folk that rail against geoblocks and such.

Example articles about live feed blocks.
The following sums it up and is from the articles:

“It’s one thing if a fan is grabbing a couple seconds of video during a key moment from his/her seat at the ballpark, but the reality is someone owns those broadcasting rights,” said a baseball source. “Any live transmission from within that ball park violates the ticket-back rules.

“Those are intellectual properties; someone has paid for rights to exclusively broadcast from those games. It’s one thing for a fan to video a singular moment — a walk-off home run. It’s another thing if people are sitting there and broadcasting from a game and using it as a destination for people to go and view it.”

Posted a reply with links about live feeds.

The forum software ate it. It will come back later as Lee usually revives it.

But the gist is that live feeds do get filtered. I don't know your feed specifics to find out who or why.

Bein Connect

I'm having an issue with Bein Connect, an app I use to stream live soccer matches.. I'm wondering if it's an issue of prohibition from the company to stream programming via my device to TV or if it's something I might be able to resolve via a setting change on my device.

That would be asked of the app's authors.

My longer reply had links about how the companies are blocking feeds and more. If you feel it's the app's fault, be sure to find their support.
