Question 43HFL5014U/12 Strange Behaviour in Casting


Novice Member
I have a 43HFL5014U/12 Philips TV connected to the internet through ethernet cable.
The tv has a built in wifi functionality.
If I connect a smartphone to the wifi SSID broadcasted by the tv, the smartphone can navigate web pages, I can use youtube and cast to the tv, but if I use the netflix app or similar (amazon prime), I can't cast to the tv.
Inside the netflix app or amazon prime app, i see the cast icon and I see the tv listed but if I click the tv, nothing happens.
I can configure a netflix and an amazon prime account inside the television but I really would like that everyone brings his smartphone, connects to the tv ssid, and cast from his app.
How can I do that?
Kindest regards and thank you in advance for helping me understand how this tv works.
