Chromecast (CC) is a clever new concept by Google aiming to allow users to share content from Youtube, Netflix (and hopefully more to come) via a little HDMI dongle for the TV.
You think you've heard of this concept before, it's called Apple TV, right? Well, It's not quite the same as Apple TV in that it won't mirror your device's screen. Instead Chromecast will pull links from it, pulls the appropriate content from the cloud and displays it in a Chrome Browser.
At the minute there is not much in the way of content, with fragmented support from iPlayer and 4od. If you're looking for something similar that will give you full access to Android on your TV in glorious High Definition then we recommend taking a look at these little Android sticks.
You can view media content in full screen without having to be in Chrome, unlike CC, which means you can take advantage of existing apps in the Play store. Not to mention, you can also use it on a projector for a truly cinematic experience.
