I’ve got the old version of this and I really wouldn’t do without it now. Watching a YouTube video, playing something on the iPlayer Radio app, iPlayer TV, All 4, NOW TV, Netflix, Spotify, Wuaki and YouTube.
Just don’t mention Amazon Prime.
Anyhoo, if you want to beam stuff from your phone (including your screen on Android) then head to Argos where you can get the new Google Chromecast gadget for just £20 now. Shove it into your HDMI port, steal a bit of USB power from your TV and boom, you’re done. I thank you.
If you want to know a bit more about how it all works and how it connects to your phone and TV, have a read of my post from 2014. Yes, it shows the older version, but the functionality and connectivity is pretty much the same.
