After numerous unsuccessful attempts to penetrate the HDMI dongle streaming market, Google finally nailed it ..... and the competition for that matter.
The fact that the Chromecast has taken Europe by storm, becoming a best seller in under a month speaks for itself!

Many simply cannot afford or justify upgrading to a new Smart TV. Others might be fed up with wires associated with set top boxes and just want to view online media. This £30 dongle will do the job in style. And the good news does not end there.... It is very cheap, sticks to the back of your TV and can be controlled via a myriad of devices.

Very true, the market is flooded with HDMI dongles, yet the Chromecast is the clear winner and a best seller thanks to "Heavy weight" Online Media companies embracing it into their apps. Since releasing the SDK (Software Development Kit) in February 2014, many app developers are hopping aboard the Chromecast wagon, in the hopes of getting a slice of the market. Terrific news for the Chromecast owners!

Pros:
○ Does what it promises on the tin ...
○ Converts your conventional TV to a Smart TV
○ Package comes bundled with everything you could possibly need to get you up and running in no time (including a UK mains adapter)
○ *Automatically switches on your TV and tunes to the CC channel when media is routed to it.

Update36: Google Play Movies adds "second screen" feature. On enabled movies, info cards on the android device give film info.

Update35: In addition to Fire TV (£79 box) just launched in the UK, Amazon US announce Fire TV Stick. No info on UK yet.

Update34: Firefox browser for android adds chromecast support.

Update33: Tesco adds UV support to its cast ready Blinkbox movie service.

Update32: Choose your own content for the screensaver, via the new "Backdrop" feature in the chromecast app.

Update31: New offer of free 3 month NOW TV Entertainment Pass worth £21.

Update30: Amazon Video adds support for android phones on Sept 10th, enabling mirroring to chromecast from a supported device.

[After 29 updates, and much time spent on answering questions and clarifying misunderstandings, I really wasn't going to spend any more time on chromecast. Especially when some people objected to being straightened out. However, I'll make an exception for the announcement from Amazon that they've added support on android phones. With a newer phone supporting official android mirroring, this means that Amazon Video can now be sent to chromecast. Looks pretty good on my setup, but phone, CC, router, and TV are all close. It's also just been announced that in addition to the Google Play Music offer, there's a free Now TV pass worth £21. I'll add updates if I see them.]

But back to the much abbreviated review.

Some folks prefer to live in an alternative universe when it comes to Chromecast.

Just some recent complaints in reviews:

It needs internet. It needs power. It doesn't stream audio. It doesn't support Airplay. It doesn't work on Kindle's Fire OS. It only works with Google apps.

I had my doubts about this but bought one for my neighbour (early Christmas present) and... "what the heck, only 30 quid"... one for myself.

I am gobsmacked how well this works. Plugged it into my TV HDMI socket, then power from a nearby socket (my TV has no USB port, which can be used to supply power ......No power on HDMI? What an oversight!...), switched TV input to that HDMI input and there was my Chromecast, ready to connect to the Internet and update itself (controlled using Chromecast app downloaded to my laptop).

After a couple of minutes, I was selecting a programme to watch on BBC iPlayer on my Android tablet, pressing the iPlayer "cast" button, and watching my programme (in pretty good HD) on my TV!

I also tried YouTube and we had great fun selecting old Top of the Pops clips on the tablet and casting them to the TV.

ITV, Channel 4 and 5 are not supporting this device. Sky are thinking about it. Well I think they will all have to think very carefully about this as this device is a huge winner and they will be the losers. Well done Auntie Beeb for having the foresight to support Chromecast which I LOVE. I am perfectly happy with all my BBC programmes (though no radio) as well as the odd YouTube video. Yah, boo, sucks to the other broadcasters!

So easy to set up!
Open box, remove dongle and power cable (there's a flexible HDMI adaptor in there too if you need the dongle to sit flush with the TV, if you're TV is wall mounted for example) plug dongle into HDMI inlet, power cable into USB port (or plug into mains adaptor if you don't have a USB on your TV - also supplied) connect power lead to dongle, then open your Chromecast app (I'm using the iOS version) It then locates your device, you confirm your network password and bosh!
That's it! Good to go...
You get a wonderful crisp 1080p picture, (I have experienced no buffering issues so far either - and that's on a measly 3 Mbps connection, so much better than is the norm on my YouView box :-$)
You've got UK support for YouTube, Netflix, BBC iPlayer, BT Sport (!) Vevo and some others too, which will work from their native apps on your phone/tablet similar to AirPlay.
In addition, if you use Chrome as your browser on your PC/laptop then unsurprisingly there is a free browser extension available from which you can beam your browser screen to your TV screen, which effectively gives you access to all of the other players available or pretty much anything else you wish to view.
Purchased as a cheap alternative to the AppleTV on our main TV, this works just as well on a technical level and the browser extension gives me potentially just as much content.
