do you have to buy netflix or is it included

  • A. You will need Google Chrome Browser on your computer/smart phone or tablet. You will see a square Icon above after connecting to Netflix it then plays the movie you have selected to the TV which has the Chromecast device connected. There is a service fee for using Netflix (Basic is just under $10 a month. Chromecast will stream it to your TV easily.

  • A. CosmoJr ... unless you have a SmartTV, you can not "just get Netflix on your TV". Without a SmartTV, in order to get Netflix streamed to your TV, you have to have a streaming device... such as the ChromeCast.

  • A. OH YES IT WILL!! You need an HDMI2AV adaptor. Sold online for about $20. The Chromecast plugs into 1 side and the output goes to 3 RCA plugs/ red,yellow, and white. I would also buy a power adaptor that accepts 2 usb power cables. The Chromecast uses 1 and the HDMI2AV uses 1. Do a youtube search and there are plenty of examples of this.

Good media streamer for the price. But to compare to an other media streamer I have, the other one wins for having many more channels (app) to stream and also having a real remote control is better. Chromcast has a virtual remote control in each individual application that you use to control pause, play, etc from your cellphone, tablet/laptop or pc that sometimes freezes or stops working in some applications and/or devices. Chromcast has updated its application to inlude a screen cast (what ever you see on your device screen you will also see it on your tv). But is in beta , needs some improvements and only works in devices with 4.4 android/kitkat versions.

I love this thing! There are a few things that you have to be aware of before purchasing it. You need to have a tv with an open HDMI port and either a usb port to power it or an electrical outlet to plug in the power adapter. A wireless internet connection. You can use a desktop PC that is using Windows Vista or higher, (it will not work with Windows XP), tablet or smartphone to configure it. Once we got it connected to the tv and on the wifi network my 8yr old started to cast directly from her ipod with no added setup, it just worked. On our android tablets and kindle fire HD we had to download the free Chromecast app and it worked without a hitch. From my windows pc I can cast webpages to the tv once I installed the Chromecast extension in my Chrome browser which was nice because from the tablet there are only a limited number of apps that can cast to it, such as Netflix, HBO GO, Pandora and some others. I think for the price that I paid for this it's a really cool gadget!

I decided to ignore bad reviews of the Google Chromecast. That was a bad mistake. I received my Chromecast and after four hours gave up trying to install it. Everything went well until I had to download the first update. I got the message that it could not connect the network. So I opened up Settings and noticed that the Wireless Password was only eight characters long instead of the 10 characters that made up my Internet wireless password. I could not change it nor could I get it to display the characters.I could not find any help on the Google website but a Forum gave me an answer as to how to do change the password. I was told to push the button on the Chromecast until it reset. Just doing that didn't work so I completely uninstalled Chromecast and started all over from the beginning. The same problem cropped up. Even though I entered the correct password for the wireless network, Settings still showed only eight characters. What is worseis that there is no phone or online support available.

I was about to buy Apple TV for $100 when I heard about this product. I already had the ability to stream Netflix shows and movies on my TV, but my network bandwidth was a continual problem. The shows were constantly stopping to sync up, and it became so annoying that I was about to cancel my Netflix subscription. When I bought the Google Chromecast player, I simply plugged it into my TV. It was very easy to set up and connect to Netflix - that I was running via an app on my iPad. Now, not only can I very quickly download Netflix programs from my iPad to my TV via Chromecast, I have the ability to rewind, fast-forward and pause or stop a show, and immediately restart where I left off. After a few seconds of downloading at the beginning, the show is good to go. No more stopping to sync up. And, by the way, I did nothing to improve my network bandwidth. I highly recommend this product, particularly for people with Netflix streaming shows and movies!

cpu antenna to slow for tab casting

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

The apps work great from your device because it makes a direct information link from your router to the tv bypassing your device but think twice if you are buying it to cast a tab from your cpu. I was able to cast standard definition to my tv from my win 7 intel core i5 gateway lap top but when I cast 720 the picture would freeze even though the audio would continue seamlessly. I wasn't sure if it was my internet speed 12mps, my brand new modem router Century Link C1000Z, my laptop, or the chromecast stick. I decided after reading through some troubleshooting at the chromecast website that it was probably due to a limitation of the wireless antenna in my laptop. It is an N and downloads high def fine e.g. NFL game rewind, but I don't think it is able to upload or cast that quickly. I haven't checked the specks but most people don't upload as much info as they download. Also the chromecast website said that casting a tab put a high workload on your computer. It is also still in beta.

This device works great on any computer for Chromecast ready web sites such as you tube, Etc. On Chromecast ready sites the Chromecast will stream directly from the internet and not your computer resulting in a HDTV experience! How ever, if you chose to cast directly from your computer you will need a more powerful computer such as a quad core CPU or better, or the chromecast will not play too good, I have a AMD quad core and I have no problem casting from my computer with out a delay, but for Chromecast ready web sites it is fine in any computer as the device will automatically switch away from your computer and it will stream from the internet. I have no problem casting videos from my computer because I am running a quad core CPU. I also have speed it up a little by running my computer via network cables to my router, but keep in mind the device is WIFI wireless. to learn more go to http://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/devices/chromecast/learn.html

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I loved this device for the few days it worked correctly. Easy as pie to set up, convenient streaming from youtube and netflix (among others), and all for 35 bucks! Me and my girlfriend were loving it, until netflix videos refused to play due to a "connection error". This problem only worsened over the following day, as virtually all of the content on netflix wouldn't cast. Youtube videos began freezing after a minute. I figured a factory reset of the device would solve the problem. Nope. I was getting fed up. I refused to spend an entire evening troubleshooting the device in the hopes I'd find a quick fix. I returned it the following day. (note: my connection was fine and all other devices were working properly.) I'd love to recommend this product, but my experience has left me wary of chromecasts. Perhaps I'm part of the unlucky 1% who got a defective device. So if you must buy it, may the odds be in your favor!

I've been looking at "smart TV'x" because I have NetFlix and like to watch the programs on my TV (a 4 or 5 year old Sylvania with 1 HDMI socket. I had been using a long cable from my laptop to the TV HDMI. I saw the ad and bought the Chromecast Player. Install was a snap. (Without even thinking I went with the plug in power adaptor because the TV is older.) Downloaded the aoo for my laptop and new Walmart phone. The set-up came right on the screen (must go to HDMI setting on TV). Within minutes I was watching Betfix on my TV from my laptop OR my smartphone. I figured watching via the smartphone face down was more descrete (no screen glare to worry about (I tilt down the laptop screen). Anyway, NetFlix, U-Tube, any web page: Click, it's on the TV. Who needs a Smart TV !? Now, for $35.00, I can wait another year for the sets to get better and the price fore the size I like to drop to the point I can't resist.
