"Airplay Gay Porn on an HDTV with an iPad"

Airplay videos to your TV

Helix Studios has been compatible with most mobile browsers since October of 2010, including the iPhone, iPad, and Android devices with Flash 10. As a Helix Studios member you can always watch any of our videos in full length on the go. Now imagine having the capability to drag and drop your videos to your very own HD television screen. Watching Cody Cachet, Kevin Kandy or Tommy Anders in all their glory streaming on your big screen HDTV is no longer just fantasy!

Helix Studios’ videos have always been compatible with devices like the Xbox 360 and the PS3 with a few extra steps requiring that you download the videos from a computer and share your library to those devices. Well not anymore! With the new Apple TV 2.0 and the iPad iOS 4.3 upgrade you can stream videos from your iPad directly to your Apple TV – the result, streaming Helix Studios scenes in beautiful full screen smooth playback.

Our tech department has made some minor adjustments to our site that allows the new Apple AirPlay to stream the entire Helix Studios video library instantly (that’s over 1400+ scenes.) The way it works is surprisingly simple but reminds you of something you would see in a sci-fi movie. You launch Safari on your iPad, or iPad 2, log into your Helix Studios member account and start watching a video. When the video comes up, you will see a little rectangle with arrow shooting out it. That’s your new friend AirPlay. Airplay sends your pictures, audio and video to the Apple TV. Got surround sound? Audio is also available with Airport Express and third-party speakers that support AirPlay.

Tap Apple TV to stream to your TV

When watching videos on your iPad from Helixstudios.com, click the Airplay button (the icon with an upward facing triangle inside the rectangle.) Then click on the Apple TV option as seen above.

Now that you’ve mastered AirPlay here’s a check list of what you’ll need to stream hot gay porn to your TV. An iPad with iOS 4.3,  an Apple TV 2.0 ($99), and your membership to Helix Studios.

Pushing video from the iPad to the big screen is revelatory; it looks and sounds fantastic. Knowing that you can walk into any Apple TV-equipped household and instantly show off your favorite Helix Studios porn in beautiful HD from your iPad will impress even the hottest of hookups. I myself prefer jacking off to porn on the biggest screen in the house. Why be limited to a computer screen, or even your iPad when you can see life-sized hot horny guys fucking on your flatscreen. Recently I even took my iPad to a friend’s house where we had a little sex/spank fetish party with a couple we met from SpankThis Hookups. The host had music streaming from his Apple TV 2, so I took advantage of the situation and streamed threeway scenes from Fratboy all night long. It was a good time! Now someone just needs to invent a lube resistant iPad cover 😉
