Cutting The Cord And Ditching Cable
My husband and I were just talking about how expensive cable is getting. By the time you add up all the packages, fees, taxes, etc., you are paying a fortune. We didn’t want to limit ourselves to having no shows or movies to watch. We just didn’t want to pay and arm and a leg for it!
My sister happened to be in the room when we had the cable discussion. She told us she decided to get rid of cable and stream with the. I had no idea what she was talking about, but I was ready to try anything!
Streaming Is The Only Way To Go!
I could not believe you could watch movies, shows, live TV, YouTube, and even have your photos streaming on your TV from all your family’s devices.¹ She explained you just plug the Chromecast from Best Buy into the HDMI port on your TV. I even knew where to find that!! Then you can power and stream from your phone!
See it. Stream it.
What I thought was really cool is you can still use your phone while you are watching your favorite shows, listen to your music playlists, and more. If you have apps like Netflix, YouTube, YouTube TV, and HBO NOW, you can stream them onto your TV with your Chromecast! You can learn more at g.co/chromecast/¹
If you have the compatible apps, you can control your TV with your voice! You can go hands-free, with Chromecast and Google Home.² How fun would it be to say, “Ok Google, play Stranger Things from Netflix on my living room TV?!” ¹
Upgrade Your TV Without Spending A Fortune!
Because we are saving for our first home, we were relieved to learn we could upgrade our TV without buying a new one! And because Chromecast is so affordable you can get one for every TV in the house! Chromecast connects to the Internet through your wireless home network (wireless router required and sold separately). So… who is ready to get rid of cable and stream with the? I know I am!!!
