chromecast.jpgChromecast is a thumb-sized media-streaming device that plugs into a television’s HDMI port. Users can mirror favorite entertainment and apps from small screen to big screen using an Android phone, tablet, iPhone®, iPad®, Mac or Windows laptop, or Chromebook. Chromecast is compatible with a growing number of apps including Netflix, HBO GO, YouTube, WatchESPN and Pandora. Additional apps are available at chromecast.com/apps.
