Chromecast is designed to make the most of the apps and entertainment already on your phone. Shows, movies, live TV, YouTube, photos and more. It’s all just a tap away from all of your family’s devices.
With rising cable costs, many Americans are “cutting the cord” and choosing to get their entertainment from on-demand streaming services such as Hulu and Netflix.
I too am a “Cord Cutter”, so even though Best Buy has compensated me for sharing product information with you in this blog post, I am genuinely excited about the newest generation of Google Chromecast. I don’t have cable either, I subscribe to a variety of streaming services that allow me to watch more customized entertainment to suit my viewing tastes.
With the new Google Chromecast I can stream my Korean dramas from Viki and Dramafever, or catch up on the latest Japanese anime with Crunchyroll and Funimation.
And unlike my Roku, or PS4, I can even play Android games on my bigscreen TV. This is a huge win for girl gamers. Check out my sister site at http://otomeplay.com for hundreds of otome games, RPGs, Simulation, and Anime Dressup Games available on the Google Play Store.
Google Chromecast is much more than just a movie-watching device. I also love that the newest generation of Chromecast can be controlled with your voice; my old Chromecast couldn’t do that! Plus at only $35, it is one of the most affordable streaming media players on the market.
