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.

Some routers are incompatible with Chromecast, please see here to view compatibility (opens in a new window).

Q & As

Google Chromecast, HDMI Media Streaming Device 4.1 5 20 20
Fantastic Service Fantastic product and fantastic service. Very quick in to store. Great for streaming videos to the TV 20 January 2015
excellent product Initially I had few problems with buffering and freezing. I was ready to send it back but decided to try it a while longer. I then bought allcast from google play store and found it excellent. It tends to buffer only on netflix . The product is good 03 January 2015
Expect more Expectations of transmitting pictures to TV met ok but buffering spoils video. Tried many ways to improve this including extended wireless router nearer to TV. The best of what is on the market probably but this technology still not up to scratch. 17 December 2014
On-line BT Sport to your TV screen If you can only access BT Sport via the on-line App because you don't have Sky, buy a Google Chromecast and for a small one off outlay you can watch your sport on your TV. 16 December 2014
What we've been waiting for! Really impressive reasonably priced easy to use little gadget that moves anything from your small screen to your large screen - whether it's a phone a tablet or a laptop this gadget makes it all viewable very easily and clearly on the TV Screen. Real progress! 18 November 2014
NOW TV unavailable on PC I was really disappointed to find that the 3 month NOW TV entertainment pass was of little use to me. Chromecast is not supported by NOW TV on Windows PCs and laptops. It only works with Android and iOS. This should have been clearly emphasised in the product and offer descriptions. 04 November 2014
Super device Took 6 minutes to set up and most of that was waiting whilst it updated itself. So far only used iplayer and Netflix but have enabled casting in my chrome browser on laptop as well so anything now possible. Pleasantly surprised by how quickly films and tv programmes download. 06 October 2014
Chromecast delight Particularly useful for my purposes as I don't use subscription channels - I use BT Broadband (hence BT sport) and Freesat (ie no sky or cable TV). Chromecast - simple to set up and delivers great quality casting from iPad and laptop makes watching BT Sport, You Tube and on-demand TV on a full-size screen a delight. Previously I found BT sport on a laptop or PC unappealing and rarely bothered with it. 20 September 2014
