There are so many ways to add internet to your TV. But, all the devices helping out for adding internet to your TV sets are kind of big plastic boxes. But Google’s new Chromecast device is the cheapest, smallest and easiest way to add internet to your TV set. The size of the Chromecast device is exactly same as the size of a flash drive.
It costs only $35, which very less as compared to Apple TV, Roku which are big plastic boxes which brings HDTV to your TV sets but costs $100. Chromecast is the easiest way to enjoy Internet TV, online video and music on your home TV. You can watch videos from YouTube, TV shows from Netflix and Google Play on your big screen home TV.
All you need to do is plug in the Chromecasr device into a power outlet or the USB jack of the Television itself. Then you have to download a setup program to your tablet/phone.

Apple TV, Roku, Plair like devices have their own remote control but for Chromecast you need to own a mobile/tablet with wi-fi.
