$35 Google device streams video to your TV

Posted: Updated:
SAN FRANCISCO -

Google has a simple and inexpensive new way to stream Internet videos on your TV.

Chromecast is a small device that lets you stream content to your television over a WI-Fi network, using your computer, phone or tablet as a remote control.

The $35 Chromecast is available now.

The two-inch dongle looks like a thumb drive and pops into the HDMI port on an HDTV. It turns your phone, tablet or computer into a remote. Choose what content you'd like to stream and the Chromecast will play it on a nearby TV.

Chromecast supports both Android and iOS devices. 

Chromecast streams directly from your Wi-Fi connection, so it's not draining your device's battery. That means you can multi-task. Check e-mail on your computer, tablet or phone while a custom YouTube playlist broadcasts on your TV.

The device currently only streams content from YouTube, Google Play and Netflix, though more apps, such as Pandora, are expected in the future.
