Product Description

Everything you love, now on your TV.

Chromecast is the easy way to enjoy online video and music on your TV. It's a thumb-sized media streaming device that plugs into the HDMI port on your TV. Set it up with a simple mobile app, then send your favourite online shows, films, music and more to your TV using your smartphone, tablet or laptop.


Supported Operating Systems:
  • Android 2.3 and higher
  • iOS 6 and higher
  • Mac OS 10.7 and higher
  • Windows 7 and higher
  • Chrome OS (Chromebook Pixel, Acer C720 Chromebook, Acer C720P Chromebook, HP Chromebook 14 and Toshiba Chromebook)
Sit back, watch together

With Chromecast, you can easily enjoy your favourite online content on your HDTV – movies, TV programmes, music, photos and more from BBC iPlayer, Netflix, YouTube, Google Play Movies and TV, Google Play Music and Chrome. No more huddling around small screens and tiny speakers. Chromecast automatically updates to work with a growing number of apps. Certain applications are optimised for Chromecast. Streaming quality for other content may vary.

Remote-free: Chromecast works with Android tablets and smartphones, iPhone and iPad devices, Chrome for Windows, Chrome for Mac, and Chromebooks. Browse for what to watch, control playback and adjust volume using your device. You won't have to learn anything new.

Plug in and play

Get started in three easy steps: Plug Chromecast into any HDTV, connect it to Wi-Fi, then send videos and more from your smartphone, tablet or laptop to your TV with the press of a button.

It's for everyone in your house: Friends and family can use your Chromecast with their smartphone, tablet or laptop without any additional setup.

Product Description

BEST VALUE ON ANYWHERE! OUR PRICE CANNOT BE BEATEN! Please note that Google Chromecast obtains its power via its USB connector from your TV set, and therefore does not come with a UK charger. Shipping to Ireland is £6.95

There's some strange reviews on this gadget. Many start with "I assumed...".

Please. I know it's only £30, but READING THE TIN IS STILL WORTHWHILE :-)

If you want to learn what it will do, as opposed to what you assume it will do, please read this review. Thank you.

Update11: Blinkbox (Tesco) announce chromecast support coming. Rent/buy movies and TV shows.

Update10: Spoticast app support added. Cast your Spotify music directly to your Chromecast from android.

Update 9: The reference to a £4.99 GP credit is back in the listing.

Update 8: Cast your Google+ photos and videos from June 3rd.

By A. Camilleri HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
I have shortened this review in order to leave space for other reviewers to voice their opinion.

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 folks 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
○ *Automatically switches on your TV and tunes to the CC channel when media is routed to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy Peasy TV upgrade 8 April 2014
By Simon M
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant but... 23 Mar 2014
Superb device, and so cheap. Works brilliantly. An absolute must buy. But... Pathetic Amazon won't allow the tab browsing function of desktop Chrome to sream Lovefilm videos to Chromecast. Absolutely fed up with Amazon and their petty refusal to work with Google, especially as the whole Kindle operating system is a knocked down version of Google's own Android OS. As well as refusing to allow me to access my Lovefilm account on any Android device, this latest petty stance from Amazon makes me mad. Closing Lovefilm account and getting rid of any Kindle software and devices. Had enough. Sort your politics out!
