Lets Talk About Google Chromecast, How to Use it & Set it up.

Gone are the days Cable TV used to be the best way of getting foreign content on your TV screen as it is been replaced with something far better considering the facts that cable tv are somehow overpriced which I think its absolutely uncalled for.


If you are geeky or techie, you’ll bear me witness that streaming is the new cable. For God sake why will you pay extra subscription for cable TV when you can simply stream directly with the same internet subscription to your TV set?

Here are smart devices that you can use as a substitute for your cable tv to make life easier and access the same foreign content without the overpriced monthly cable TV subscription. With any of these devices, what you will only be concern of with is your internet subscription and nothing elese. No more Monthly cable tv subscription.


So, if you are planning to ditch your cable contract and go for internet content, you should be thinking about purchasing Roku Ultra Streaming Device, the Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV or the Google Chromecast

But let’s talk about Google Chromecast.
Google helps simplify your online life—from email and online storage to news and digital maps. But it can also take over your TV with its Chromecast, a streaming dongle that got a colorful makeover in 2015 and a 4K "Ultra" upgrade last year.

The Google Chromecast
The Google Chromecast Ultra for media streaming allows you stream in up to 4K Ultra HD and HDR with stunning pictures and lightning speed. What this means is that when you plug it into your regular TV HDMI port over your WIFI network it allows you stream movies, music and entertainment content in crisper picture, deeper color and smoother video quality with almost to no buffering and smoother streaming.

Whether your TV is 4K or HD, Chromecast Ultra automatically optimizes your content for the best picture quality possible.

Why Do I Need Chromecast?
With Chromecast, you get unlimited entertainment, all on your schedule. So, you’re not limited to the restrictive bouquet type access that you get on cable. With the Chromecast, you can access the latest movies on Netflix, the latest series on HBO and YouTube or browse over 200,000 TV shows and movies, 30 million songs plus radio, sports, games and more plus a range of free, subscription or paid content from thousands of apps.


Why Don’t I Need Chromecast?
If you prefer to watch TV the old-fashioned way (via network television, cable or DVR), Chromecast won't do you much good. Similarly, if you don't subscribe any streaming video services, Chromecast may be of limited utility. If you own a Roku, Apple TV, PS4 or Xbox One, your device already gives you access to most of the same content you'd get via Chromecast.

How Do I Set Up Chromecast?
Just plug it into your TV, have a smartphone or computer handy, and follow the instructions. As soon as Chromecast and your controller device connect to the same Wi-Fi, they should recognize each other and walk you through the rest of the process. 


Now, that’s a whole lot more than Cable TV offers you. Even if your WIFI network isn’t ready for the demands of 4K, Chromecast comes with a built in Ethernet adapter so you can enjoy rock solid streaming over a wired connection.

Where Can I Get Chromecast?
Well, you can get it on AliExpress, Bestbuy, Ebay for $35or Jumia Global for just N33,900.

Are you using it already? Lets here what you think.

  6. Chromecast is good But here in Nigeria, high cost of internet data is a big barrier

    ReplyDelete
  7. I have Fire Stick, its god but believe me all this streaming devices are not meant for Nigeria, because of high data subscriptions we are facing here, hardly you will see a truly unlimited packages in Nigeria without the so called fair use sage, thats why you hardly see free WIFI around in Nigeria, unlike unlimited free WIFI abroad.

    1. I think I kind of agree with you but I am using the unlimited plan of InterC, in the office and at home and also with my ChromeCast and it serves me well... Only if Airtel unlimited can pay off. But data is expensive here in nigeria but more expensive abroad.

  8. I am using smart TV which comes with inbuilt wifi, so no need for Chromecast. but data to stream is of essence. but if u help with a means of acquiring cheap data apart from the Airtel 1k 3gig I have been using for years now. will really appreciate. though screen mirroring really makes sense.

  9. High cost of data in Nigeria

  10. Since data is still very expensive in Nigeria, I don't see the usefulness of this. It's cheaper to subscribe for cable.

  11. Get an android box and achieve more with less stress. And it is cheaper
