See It, Stream It With the Google Chromecast


Since moving to California from Chicago, my family and I try to go somewhere new every weekend. As a result, out TV watching time has been reduced significantly. Coupled with the fact that we were paying almost $200 a month for traditional cable, it seemed like the perfect time to cut the cable.

Stream from your phone to TV

After researching my options, the Google Chromecast emerged as the clear choice for me. Simply plug the Chromecast into a power source and the HDMI port on your TV and you are ready to stream your favorite entertainment choices from your smartphone, tablet or laptop. And you can continue multi-tasking on your device without interrupting your program.

Works with the streaming apps you know and love

By using YouTube TV in conjunction with Netflix, HBO Now, Showtime and YouTube, I can still enjoy all of my favorite shows at a fraction of what I was paying for cable.

Start streaming with just your voice

I also love that my Chromecast is integrated with Google Home allowing me to control it with voice commands. For example,

“Ok Google, play Stranger Things from Netflix on my living room TV.”
