Chromecast changes everything. It will revolutionize the tv watching experience.
The Chromecast is designed first to be a streaming device. It’s supposed to be the easiest way to get YouTube and Google Play and Netflix and Pandora and photos on HDTVs. Think Apple TV, but rather Google TV in a new incarnation.
The Chromecast uses an AirPlay-type system to provide content to the device. From Android or iOS, users simply hit a button on YouTube to load the video on the other screen. Quick and easy.
Chromecast is multiplatform on ios, android and I assume the chrome browser. It also features group playlists, continues playing the media back while the phone is doing other things and even streams while the device is asleep.
Any device can be the controller. Start a video on one device, turn it off, and another device can still control the video started. It appears to be seamless.
Desktops connected to the same network can also act as a controller. Click the cast button, the video will play and the computer will continue to play the media as it does other tasks.
The device itself is a small HDMI usb dongle. It’s powered by USB and Google TV
The Chromecast is $35 and is available today in the U.S.
As Dale Roe points out in his Statesman.com column, this is no boring summer for tv. There are dozens of tv show debuts and returning shows.

Elements of a television system
- An image source. This is the electrical signal representing the visual image, and may be from a camera in the case of live images, a video tape recorder for playback of recorded images, or a film chain-telecine-flying spot scanner for transmission of motion pictures (films).
- A sound source. This is an electrical signal from a microphone or from the audio output of a video tape recorder or motion picture film scanner.
- A transmitter, which generates radio signals (radio waves) and encodes them with picture and sound information.
- An antenna coupled to the output of the transmitter for broadcasting the encoded signals.
- An antenna to receive the broadcast signals.
- A receiver (also called a tuner), which decodes the picture and sound information from the broadcast signals, and whose input is coupled to the antenna.
- A display device, which turns the electrical signals into visual images.
- An audio amplifier and loudspeaker, which turns electrical signals into sound waves (speech, music, and other sounds) to accompany the images.
