    I have several smart home things from Amazon and Google, and while I like the Google Home more, I found this clunky and not compatible with nearly enough apps. Additionally it works from your phone which pulls serious energy from your phone. I wish it had some other app capabilities like Prime Video but I'll live

    We gave up cable and switched to you tube tv. Our smart tv is a bit old and didn't work with you tube tv directly. We need a streaming device. ThIs product was easily installed and we were up and running quickly! I am going to buy another one for our second tv!

    This small disc plugs into an unused HDMI port and a USB port on the back of your flat screen TV. Supposedly you can "cast" (stream on your TV ) from well over 1,000 apps on your smartphone. A distinctive Chromecast icon appears on your phone if you are using an app that you can cast to your TV. Frankly, I was only interested in one: DAZN (pronounced "duh zone." DAZN is the new source for boxing on the Internet. DAZN just signed Canelo Alvarez-the undisputed middleweight champion of the world to a $365 million contract for exclusive rights to eleven of Canelo's bouts over the next five years. DAZN isn't compatible with Roku. @@@@@@@@ I should add the word "yet," because it's in the interest of DAZN to be as widely available as possible. There is no subscription charge for the Google Cromecast. However, you have to pay for many of the streaming services that you play on it. Once you are connected (you first download the free Google Home app. Google sees the Chromecast as a component of your futuristic Google Home. I don't want to open my garage door with my phone; I just want to watch boxing. I had some trouble getting DAZN going initially. However, Google Chromecast has excellent phone support. The customer support guy guessed that I had many apps running in the background of my iPhone. I double-clicked on the button and swiped away the apps that I wasn't using, and then I could cast DAZN, Thye picture is beautiful, and I am delighted with my purchase. Incidentally, once you get the boxing match going, you can use your phone for other things. There is no need for a line-of-sight connection between the phone and the Google Chromecast.
