Amazon Firestick/FireTv or Nvidia Shield.

A chromecast stick will work. Or an Amazon fire stick. Or Apple TV? Even a now to box? Or even an Xbox or PlayStation?

Can you use chromecast without phone/laptop?

Best bet would probably be a secondary connected device, as others have mentioned the Amazon Fire range, NVIDIA shield TV and possibly the Chromecast are suitable devices. This also has the advantage of being modular in the sense that, when the software becomes older and obsolete you can upgrade the device separate to your TV.

The Chromecast does require a secondary device to "cast" from, essentially the Chromecast is the receiver from the primary device (phone/tablet). The Amazon fire range is easy to use and does not need a secondary device to control. The Shield TV is probably the best of both world as it is not as limiting as an Amazon fire device and has the same features as a Chromecast as well as a myriad of streaming options and access to the TV version of the Google Play Store.

I hope this helps :)

Thanks :D

I like the sound of the Fire stick. Is there any cheaper similar item?

Nvidia shield nice but too expensive and an extra box on the table

The firestick practically made my not-so-smart Samsung TV into a smart TV wireless usb with remote - dead handy. Nice bit of kit.
