I wanted to air play the MLB game on TBS from either the TBS app or DirecTV app but there was no option to air play using my iPad.
Is there away to air play when no option to is available? ATV 3.
Not sure I understand the need to do this. You seem to have DirecTV. Is it because you do not have a DirecTV receiver for the TV in question?
Anyways, given how restrictive MLB is over their content, I doubt there is a work around but have you tried using AirPlay Mirroring instead?
