Do you still have cable or satellite? If the answer is ‘yes’, how are you liking that ever-increasing monthly charge? We got tired of the price always going up and up, so we cut the cord about 5+ years ago, and haven’t looked back!
I talked my aunt into ditching her satellite service, and she couldn’t be happier with her options to stream her favorite shows. And yes, I’ve become her tech guru when it comes to her buying new ways to stream…heh! Lots of people choose to upgrade their TVs when they cut their cable, but you really don’t have to.
Seriously! You can turn that DumbTV into a SmartTV by using things like this newest version of Google Chromecast Streaming Media Player:
Trust me, this tiny little device packs a big punch! Chromecast is designed to make the most of the apps and entertainment. Watch movies, shows, live TV, YouTube, and photos streaming on your TV from all your family’s devices.¹
Plug Chromecast into the HDMI port on your TV to power and stream your favorite entertainment right from your phone with just a tap. Watch your favorite shows, listen to playlists, and more. While streaming, you can still use your phone as you normally do. How cool is that?
Google Chromecast works with the streaming apps you already know and love.
Chromecast also allows you to start streaming with just your voice. You heard that right! (see what I did there?) This is voice powered, too! Just say what you want to watch from compatible apps and control your TV hands-free, with Chromecast and Google Home working seamlessly together.²
“Ok Google, play Green Arrow on Netflix on my living room TV.” ¹
Thanks to Chromecast’s high speed, wireless connectivity, you can seamlessly stream all of your favorite music, movies, and more. Chromecast offers built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi connects to the Internet through your wireless home network. (wireless router required and sold separately)
Upgrade your TV for less
Expand your home entertainment without buying a new TV. It’s so affordable you can get one for every TV in the house. How is that possible?! you ask… Google Chromecast is only around $35, so upgrading all of your existing TVs won’t break the bank!
Please note: Web-based services and content require existing, high-speed Internet service. Some services, such as Netflix or Hulu, may require a subscription (but trust me, it’s still cheaper than paying for cable or satellite!). Once you get those set up, Google Chromecast can stream them all flawlessly!
¹ Subscriptions are required to view some content.
² Google Home, Chromecast, and compatible content required to cast to a TV using Google Home.
Are you a cord-cutter yet? And if so, what are your favorite ways to stream your favorite shows?
