  1. Jailbreak or unblocking might not be a solution and it is also discouraged by Apple too. So, I use PlayerXtreme for casting my screens to watch movies and video on the big screen through its chrome cast and Airplay features. It also provides 1080p backup along with Dolby Digital and True HD support. It also enhances the audio 3times without compromising the quality. Give it a shot!
