See It! Stream It! Chromecast is Available at Your Local Best Buy


When we moved into our place I opted for a cable package because it was such a good deal. Fast forward to the end of that sign-up period, and the bill went up atrociously. Now, we're looking to cut the cord to cable, and have been thinking of streaming our entertainment instead, with the Google Chromecast Streaming Media Player, available at Best Buy.
What will we miss from cable if we go this route? Well, after a bit of research, it looks like nothing, except for the hefty bill. With the Google Chromecast, we will be able to watch movies, shows, live TV, and YouTube.


We will also be able to stream from our phones to the TV (pretty sure everyone in the house will love that huge perk). In fact, we'll be able to stream from all of our family's devices (subscriptions required to view some content) by simply plugging Chromecast into the HDMI port on the TV. After that, everythng on the phone is just a tap away, including access to your pictures. I can't count the number of times I have handed my phone over to show my family or guests a photo on it, and then they all had to pass it around to see it. Displaying the photo or photos on the TV for everyone to see at the same time seems like a far better choice to me. Watch shows, listen to music, and so much more, AND you can still use your phone while doing so, just as you normally would do.

Chromecast works with all of the streaming apps you know and love as well. Watch your favorite TV shows, movies, videos, songs, games, sports and more from over 2,000 apps like Netflix, YouTube, YouTube TV, and HBO NOW. 

There's an Additional Option to Stream by Voice
You can stream with just your voice too by simply saying what you want to watch from compatible apps. Control your TV hands-free, when Chromecast and Google Home work seamlessly together. 

"Okay Google, play Stranger Things from Netflix on my living room TV." 

Now that is seriously smart. :)

Google Home, Chromecast and compatible content required to cast to a TV using Google Home. 

Upgrade Your TV for Less
Expand your home entertainment without buying a new TV. Chromecast is very affordable too, so you can get one for every TV in the house. It is compatible with your existing HDTV and easily connects to high-definition televisions with HDMI connectivity. It also has high speed connectivity with built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi that connects to the internet through your wireless home network (wireless router required and sold separately).

I'm thinking this is the way to go. It's definitely going to help us save a bundle when we cut out that cable bill. I'm headed to Best Buy this week to pick up mine.

Chromecast sounds great. I really love technology. There was a time when this was the stuff of sci-fi movies.

We gave up cable years ago. We have Roku and that's been working fine, but this seems to do much more. I'll have to check this out.

Have a fabulous day. ♥

Pat Hatt said...

Sounds like it will do the trick indeed. But I'm assuming you still have to sign up for every friggin thing. With all these subscriptions to this and that, it's getting as bad as a cable bill.

Melanie Walsh said...

We got rid of cable, but I was missing TV. Love that there are such affordable streaming options. Got to look into this more!

Theresa Mahoney said...

We turned off our cable a year ago and don't miss it a bit. We stream everything these days, so this is something we would probably get a lot of use from.

Cindy Ingalls said...

I would love to get rid of my Directv. Every month the price goes up and the service doesn't really improve. I think Chromcast might be a great alternative.

Elisha Elyssa said...

We have a Chromecast but it is outdated. We are definitely going to buy the new one! It looks amazing!

Lisa Rios said...

Yes, you are absolutely right you will miss nothing from cable tv service. There are so many services out there and Chromecast makes it SO simple to watch anything your heart desires.

I was just talking to my husband about this and cutting our cable! Sounds perfect.

Binky said...

Cable costs more and more every year, and you seem to get less and less. The streaming services are a much better deal.

Looks real practical, we don't have cable as well. Nowadays, convenience and price for it has been better than before!

Blanca Val said...

Amazing how high cable prices can be, those business models are going to be extinct soon because of great tools like chromecast. Love that they're avialable to us.

Sarah Meh said...

Chromecasts are seriously amazing aren't they! Myself and the OH got both our parents one as well as our own and have taught them to stream over bits!
