Google has shaken up the world of TV streaming devices with their all-new Chromecast. A tiny $35 dongle attaches to any HDTV and allows streaming via apps like Netflix, YouTube, Google Play, and Chrome. Control it from your Android-powered smartphone or tablet – and good news for iOS fans — there’s an iOS app on the way too!
Chromecast competes with the likes of Roku and Apple TV, but with a price-point this low, it pretty much blows everything else out of the water. We intend to use ours on-the-road. Who doesn’t need an easy way to stream programming when you’re stuck in a hotel with only basic cable and expensive PPV movies?
