Chromecasting is a simple way of streaming content on your TV from your laptop, tablet or mobile.

The Chromecast device itself is a streaming ‘dongle’ produced by Google, which can be plugged into your TV's HDMI port.

Setting up Chromecast

If you’ve never used your Chromecast device before, you’ll need to set it up according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
