However, you can always use one of the devices that allow you to connect TIMVISION to your TV .
How to access TIMVISION on Smart TV
After downloading and starting the TIMVISION app, you are ready to log into your account by selecting one of the available options. If, on the other hand, you do not yet have an account, you must know that from Smart TV it is not possible to register or subscribe to the service in question: to do this, you will necessarily have to proceed from a computer, smartphone or tablet, as I explained to you in my guide on how to register for TIMVISION .

How to watch TIMVISION on Smart TV
After logging into your account, on the TIMVISION main screen you can view some of the content available in the service catalog divided by category ( Recently added , TIMVISION exclusives , In the kingdom of adventure , Love parade , Most viewed etc. ).
Alternatively, then choose a content to watch either by selecting the Search option and entering the title in the appropriate field or by accessing the individual sections available in the sidebar on the left.
In particular, by pressing on the Cinema and Series items you can view all the films and TV series available on the platform, while by accessing the Entertainment section you can see the original TIMVISION productions, including some documentaries dedicated to the world of music and all the entertainment contents of discovery + , Discovery Italia’s video streaming service included in the TIMVISION subscription.
In the Kids section , you can find contents dedicated to the little ones, such as cartoons, programs dedicated to animal lovers and many other educational contents. By pressing, instead, on the Sport option , you can watch the live broadcast of the Eurosport channels (they are included for free in all TIMVISION offers for 12 months), all the Serie A women’s championship matches and access the TIMVISION and discovery + sports content.
Furthermore, by accessing the Replay section , you not only have the possibility to review the Mediaset TV programs broadcast in the last 7 days but also to access the live view of the Mediaset channels (eg Canale 5 , Canale 20 etc.), those of Discovery Italia (eg Real Time , NOVE , DMAX ) and other channels such as Spike and Paramount Channel .
You must know, however, that if you have activated the TIMVISION Football and Sport offer, it is not possible to see all Serie A matches, the Champions League and all other sports content included in the offer in question through the TIMVISION app for Smart TV. The same goes for offers that include access to Disney + and Netflix services . In this case, to watch the content of your interest you will necessarily have to download the individual reference applications (eg DAZN ).
After identifying the content you intend to watch, go to its poster and press the OK button on the remote control, to view all the details, such as the plot , the duration , the year of publication , the genre and the cast . Furthermore, if available for the chosen content, you can press on the Trailer option that allows you to see the trailer, while pressing on the Watch item , you can start playing the title in question.

Furthermore, by pressing the speech bubble icon located at the bottom right, you can change the audio of the content being played and activate the subtitles .
Also, you should know that if you stop watching any content, you can resume it later from the exact point you left off. To do this, access the content of your interest and select the Continue watching option , while pressing the Watch from start button you can start playback from its beginning.
Finally, I would like to point out that by pressing on the Profile item located in the sidebar on the left, you can view your personal data and the devices associated with TIMVISION, activate the parental control and change the password of your account (option not available if you are logged in via telephone number).
On the other hand, by selecting the Change account option visible in the Personal area section and pressing the Next button , you can exit TIMVISION and possibly log in with a different account.
How TIMVISION works on non-Smart TVs
If your Smart TV is not among those on which you can download the TIMVISION app or if you have a TV without a direct connection to the Internet, you can always rely on one of the smart devices compatible with the service which, once connected to the HDMI port of the TV, they allow you to play all the contents of TIMVISION without any problem.
The first device of this kind that I recommend you use is the TIMVISION Box which, if you have activated any TIMVISION offer, was provided to you at no additional cost. It is an Android TV Box compatible with the DVB-T2 standard to be connected to the TV via an HDMI input and which allows you to transform a TV into a Smart TV .
This decoder allows you to watch all digital terrestrial channels, access installed “series” applications, such as DAZN , Netflix , Mediaset Play , Prime Video , YouTube etc. and to download others directly from the Play Store. In addition, it also allows you to view DAZN without the Internet .
Chromecast is another valid solution that you can consider to watch TIMVISION on non-Smart TVs or not compatible with the service app. It is a dongle produced by Google available in two different versions: a basic model , cheaper, which only allows the streaming of content transmitted from smartphones, tablets and PCs in Full HD, and the other, called Chromecast with Google TV , which supports 4k, is equipped with a remote control and allows you to download apps from the Play Store and use them directly on the device, without necessarily using a second device to broadcast the content to watch (which you can still do).
