Details

If you live life through your phone, the budget Google Chromecast can help you stream all your content from your iPhone or Android to your big-screen TV. Simple to plug in, the Chromecast is easy to set up and then you can watch all the shows or movies you like and enjoy your favourite music and playlists without bothering with a remote. 

On the phone it works like magic when you tap the Cast button in any cast-enabled app to stream content to your TV. That gets around all the finding content on your big screen or wading through slow set-top box or smartTV menu systems. 

Supported apps include Netflix, Disney+, YouTube, Amazon Prime, BBC iPlayer and Spotify among many others. As it lives behind your TV, there’s not much worry about Charcoal being the only colour for this model, and once it is up and running, like all good technology, you will forget it is there. 

Summary

Pros

  • One of the simplest and most efficient media solutions

Cons

  • For not much more you can get 4K support and smarter features.
