Chromecast - For Your Video Streaming Needs

 

It's what I want for Christmas...

For the low low price of $35, get a device that plugs directly into your TV via HDMI and connect it to your Wifi network to stream videos from Youtube, Netflix, Hulu Plus, etc. Use the Chromecast app to configure it to your Wifi network, then just access it from any Chromecast-capable app or program to cast videos directly to your TV.

The real power from this device comes from its flexibility. You can move it anywhere in your home very easily and plug it in to any TV with an HDMI port. Most importantly, the streaming doesn't happen from your phone or laptop and gets sent to the Chromecast. It simply tells your Chromecast which video to stream from the cloud - meaning you can continue to use your phone or laptop when you've started the stream.... or even shut it off if you want.

If you have multiple spaces in your home that you'd like to have access to Netflix or other streaming programs then buy 2 or 3 and label them with the Chromecast App so that you can easily stream content anywhere any time in your home.

For $35 it's a pretty good deal.
