How do I connect my Samsung Galaxy S® III to my TV?

Your mobile device can connect to your HDTV using the Samsung HDTV Smart Adapter, available for purchase separately on the Samsung Accessories page.. The adapter provides you with a standard HDMI® connection that supports HD signals up to 1080p; an HDMI cable is not included.

  • Using HDTV Adapter

    The HDTV Adapter lets you view videos and other media stored on your phone via a compatible HDTV. To connect the HDTV Adapter to your device, follow these steps:

    1. Connect one end of a universal HDMI cable into the HDTV Adapter.
    2. Connect the other end to the HDMI port on your TV. If your TV has multiple HDMI ports, you may use any of the ports. Ensure your TV input settings have the right HDMI port selected. See your TV owner's manual to get more information.
      Note: Universal HDMI cables are sold separately.
    3. Connect your travel charger to the HDTV Adapter and then to an approved power source. This is an optional step and should be used if you would like to maintain your battery's charge.
    4. Connect the HDTV Adapter connector into the Power/Accessory Interface port on your device. This is the same port you normally use to connect your travel charger. The TV screen will instantly display what is on your device Home screen.
      Note: Most digital rights management-protected content cannot be displayed using the HDTV Adapter. Please ensure the HDTV is compatible with viewing videos or other media stored on your phone using the HDTV Adapter. Refer to your TV owner's manual for correct HDMI settings. Your HDTV may not display an image when connecting the HDTV Adapter to a desktop dock.
