The Chromecast is about the size of a USB flash drive and attaches to a spare HDMI port on your TV, it supports Android and iOS on the mobile side and Windows 7 / Mac OS 10.7 and higher on the computer side.

The Chromecast is by no means Google's first attempt at a TV product. The Google TV box (remember that?) was almost a complete disaster, but the Chromecast should be precisely the opposite. At £30 it's well within reach of everyone, and it's very...

Technically, the Chromecast is a wonder to behold. If all you want is a cheap way to get iPlayer and Netflix, it's a good choice, but it needs more content before it becomes a must-buy for...

The Chromecast is a very promising device, but it doesn't quite tick all our boxes at the moment. If all you need is a cheap way to watch Netflix on your TV, this is undoubtedly the device for you, but those who require anything more will likely be...

The Google Chromecast is the least expensive way to access online services on your HDTV if you can't do so already, but better options are available now.

At just £30 it's worth taking a risk with it, even though it's new to the market. It's easier to add apps to the market than, say, NowTV so in time we should hopefully see a lot more content becoming available. It's a simple idea but powerful and I'm...

At £30 Chromecast is good value, but for most BBC iPlayer, Netflix and YouTube won't be enough. It's elegant and simple to use, but it needs more apps before it is a must...

The Chromecast is, for the money, an incredibly tempting deal for anyone with Netflix, or a love for YouTube, and the inability to watch these on their TV. It's easy to setup, even easier to use and we've found it reliable in our couple of weeks of...

So Netflix, the BBC iPlayer and a host of other content can all be sent via your phone or tablet to your TV. It means that YouTube, for instance, is suddenly much-more accessible on the big screen than ever before.This is not because there has been a...

It’s a work-in-progress project, but the Google Chromecast offers simple, reliable, cheap streaming that 100 per cent in line with the trend for more mobile-centric control.

Chromecast is an inexpensive, easy-to-use way of accessing a dozen worthy apps, most of which have content readily available on rival streaming services. Netflix and YouTube are ubiquitous, and while Google Play Music and Google Play Movies & TV finally...

The Chromecast is cheap, easy to use and works well for Netflix, YouTube and now a few other niche apps, but it's not really bringing anything essential to the video streaming table just yet. If you have an Apple TV, PS3, Xbox 360, smart TV or smart...

One morning the week it came out, I called several local Best Buys. Most had none available, except one had nine of them, from a new shipment. I went at lunch that day- two hours after the phone call- and they were all long gone. After I ordered it...

It’s perfect for quickly and cheaply adding Netflix or YouTube to additional televisions or adding streaming options while on the go. It’s now up to Google to broaden its content possibilities or risk watching Chromecast go the way of Google TV....

Smart TVs such as the Vizio E320i-A0 smart TV can be a great addition to any room in your house. But what if you just got a shiny new not-so-smart TV or don't want to spend that much money on another one? Have no fear, because there is a much cheaper way...

In the past few years, a dilemma has arrived for many of us who enjoy much of our video entertainment from online sources such as Netflix, YouTube and Google Play. Sure, we have had things like Roku boxes, Apple TV devices, and even smart TV's that...

The Chromecast isn’t available in India and we don’t think it will be available anytime soon. Even if you do manage to get one, you may be not be able to stream content from your Android smartphone as the Chromecast app isn’t available in India.The...

Google's Chromecast promises easy “casting” of digital content from PC, tablet or phone to your TV, but it's only officially sold in the US. What's the experience like using it in Australia?Over at Gizmodo (where I'm guest editing for the week, which is...

So is the Chromecast of any use? Well at the moment the lack of supporting apps might make the Chromecast seem a bit useless, but Google have promised that more apps are on the way. YouTube streaming is by far the best thing about the Chromecast, and...
