ANSWER: Yes you can if your laptop has audio out. It must have internal tv or audio support for audio output of some kind.  Some have analog via rca jacks; some have digital optical or digital coax output.  And your tv must have corresponding input facility.

The specifications on each will tell you in the output and input listings of the specific product you have.

Specifications are nearly always online if you search them out and download.

Answer
I think it must be tested.  Compatibility and version of software is key to it being able to operate via bluetooth.  Most bluetooth implementation of tv is to feed tv speaker addition and it it outgoing not incoming; but you can check the specifications for it.
