Google Chromecast.

Anybody got one of these?

Easy to use?

Pros and cons?

I have Prime and Netflix so is there any point?

On sale at £20.

You wont go wrong with having a chromecast. Only thing that doesnt work on it is apple products, they dont do chromecasting.

There are lots of casting apps on the appstore that say they will do the job with chromecast....?

Right, I meant you cannot mirror your iphone screen

So you cast the bedroom action right to your TV?

Hmmmmm

My subscription doesn't include the hd package, but when I chromecasted it at a friend's house it was hd. Nice surprise that

I use mine for Plex (and Netflix when I had a sub). It saves me having to find the PS4 controller and doing it via that.

Unfortunately Amazon Video doesn't allow you to directly cast. You might be able to cast a tab via Chrome as a work around, but haven't checked.

Amazon do now allow prime video to cast, Google and them came to an agreement this year, Amazon get YouTube for firestick and Google get prime on Chromecast, been working for a couple of months at least.

Ahh, that is great. Cheers for the update!
