What are you using to Stream?  Are you using your TV through a TV app, or an external device such as a Directv Streaming Box, Roku, Fire Stick ect...  Because if you are using the Directv Streaming Box it will only work on one TV it is not capable to connect to more than one TV.

A clearer way of saying this is that every TV needs its own streaming device.  That can be an external device - like a Roku, FireTV, AppleTV, or DirecTV Stream's own streaming device - plugged into the TV.  Or it can be built into the TV, but the only types of smart TVs directly supported are ones with Roku built-in, FireTV built-in, or relatively recent models of Samsung TV.  The full list of supported devices is here.  (They indicate that they support Chromecast built-in TVs, but that is only as the target of casting.  They do not have apps for Google TV or Android TV.)
