Streaming content is easier than ever.

But what about watching streamed content on your big screen TV? It’s easier than you think. You’ll need a TV with a USB port to connect a casting device or a smart TV. Much like smartphones and smart home devices, a smart TV uses your home network to provide streaming video and services on your TV, and smart TVs use wired Ethernet and built-in Wi-Fi to stay connected. Many popular smart TV brands now come with Chromecast already built in.
