I better buy roku tv for 17 pounds for yt . Even doh good find .
Has anyone had any experience of connecting these to an AV Amp for DD+?
For me, chromecast is the single quickest method of getting the content i want on my tv, and it has been for years. The most important thing for most people is being able to stream tv and movies. Most android users have all the dodgy movies apps etc on their phones. I see daily whats been updated while out and about. Most of the time i can plan on what im watching before im home fron work by checking the latest updates on my phone. Plus, because i tend to have my phone on me most of the time, the updates happen regularly throughout the day,so i don't have to sit around waiting for updates when i actually want to watch stuff. when i want to watch a movie/tv show, i browse it through the phone app and cast it to the tv. The whole process takes around 30 seconds There is nothing that can compare to it. Sure the firestick is good but ive found you need to constantly faff around with new build versions of kodi etc and its very slow to load. It can all be done so much quicker and smoother on your phone.Plus theres one less remote to worry about.
Nobody arguing pointed out you can use google home to play things from YouTube and Netflix on the chrome cast. You can’t do that with the TVs built in cast functionality nor can you do it with Apple TV. I have an iPhone and I love my chrome cast for its speed
This may or may not apply to everyones TVs, but I can use the play/pause button on my TV remote to control the chromecast. So I don't need to reach for my phone if I want to quickly pause my episode of Better Call Saul :-D
