  • 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.

  • 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. If you want to watch (stream) a movie from Netflix, then you need a monthly subscription to Netflix. This can be cancelled at the end of any month. Netflix presently has an offer for a one month free trial.

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!
