Google Chromecast, HDMI Media Streaming Device

Product information

Chromecast, from Google, makes it easy to enjoy online video and music on your TV. This thumb-sized device plugs into your TV's HDMI port to allow you to send your favourite online shows, films, music and more to your TV using your smartphone, tablet or laptop.

Enjoy together
Chromecast makes huddling around a laptop or tablet screen with tiny speakers to watch a movie a thing of the past. Easily enjoy your favourite online content on your HDTV from apps like BBC iPlayer, Netflix, YouTube, Google Play Movies and TV, Google Play Music and the Chrome browser so you can take in movies, TV programmes, music and more in comfort. Chromecast even automatically updates to work with a growing number of apps.

Easy set up
Chromecast is easy to set up: simply plug it into your TV and a USB power source (adapter included) and connect it to Wi-Fi using your laptop, tablet or smartphone app. From there, you can use your chosen device to cast your content straight to your TV with the press of a button. Friends and family connected to your wireless network can get involved too, with no additional set up.

Simple controls
Because Chromecast streams from your device, it uses the interface you're used to control it. Manage playback and volume controls simply and easily with your chosen device, with no need for extra remotes.

Q & As

Perfect and easy to use Easy to set up and connect to phone. Has improved my TV 110%. Would highly recommend Google Chromecast to anyone. 05 September 2014
WONDERFUL For months I have been longing to ditch the hdmi cable. Having to get out of my seat to change the programme, and being unable to use my macbook whilst watching a show is now a thing of the past. With the apple tv being out of my budget, I was skeptical when this came along. But now I can honestly say, it's everything I could have wanted. Now I can binge watch homeland on netflix whilst filling out job applications. 30 August 2014
BT router As ever with John Lewis the delivery was spot on, fast, well wrapped, 10/10, however the product itself does not work if you have a BT router, as you cannot manually change the settings needed, a shame as I'd guess 40-50% of the country are with BT, looks to have so much to offer, yet sadly for me becomes a draw filler. 02 August 2014
very handy Brilliant bit of kit . ok it would be nice to have more apps for it (they're on the way ) . can send from anything network connected in the home , laptops iphones tablets computers phones the lot . Screen mirroring in the new chrome cast update for android 4.4 is real clever and simple. candy crush on a 42" tv v funny . John Lewis Cribbs you are brilliant and always helpful. 17 July 2014
Good but not what I was expecting If you want to simply view photos or use you TV as another screen, this isn't the product for you. It only works with the apps stated on the box, which are all good but not what I was looking for. A good product but I will be returning mine. 16 July 2014
So so only I have BT broadband which provides the network for the system. There may need to be an adjustment required to the WiFi unit as I have not yet been able to connect satisfactorily. When using laptop with browser the system does seem to be more reliable. I suspect my problems are BT equipment ones rather than with the device. However, I am disappointed that it does not work as simply as I had envisaged. It does not appear to be a "plug and play" device. 10 July 2014
Great product Mainly used for Netflix. Easy to use, reliable and a great picture. 09 July 2014
Simple and works We got this to be able to watch Netflix on our 8 yr old tv, rather than the ipad. Set up was easy and it works very well. We have high speed virgin internet supply , so not sure how well it would work with a low signal. Definitely recommend versus more expensive apple cabling option. 18 June 2014
