Cut the Cable Cord with Google Chromecast

Did you know the average cable bill is $150.00 a month? That’s $1,800 annually—and many subscribers only watch a fraction of what they’re paying for. 

Around here, we love to watch TV and movies. Years ago, when cable was the only option, we did have it, but once streaming became popular, it was no longer important. 

One of the easiest—and cheapest—options for streaming is Google Chromecast. For $35.00, this little gadget allows you to watch movies, shows, live TV, listen to music, play video games, and more. It works with all the major apps like Netflix, HBO NOW, YouTube, Hulu, etc. 

Setting up Chromecast is super quick and painless—just plug it into an existing HDTV with HDMI connectivity. There is also a built-in WiFi connecting Chromecast to the internet through your home’s wireless network.

Another cool feature is that it’s voice activated. Just say what you want to watch from compatible apps and control your TV with no hands required, as Chromecast and Google Home seamlessly work together.

    Cord-cutting is the way to go. My Mom and I made the chop a few years ago with Roku and between Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and all the free content I can find through the myriad apps, I am still saving a fortune and have plenty to see!

      So true! It’s funny how everyone seems to love Netflix the most, but my personal favorite is YouTube which is free. Everything on cable is a rerun anyway and the amount of commercials is mind numbing.

        I love Netflix for their documentaries. Wild, Wild Country was particularly interesting to me since the Rajneesh bio-terror attack in Oregon was big news in California when I was a kid.

          That one was shocking and endlessly fascinating to me as well. Isn’t it funny how “holy” men need a Rolls Royce and a huge compound? Such a fraud! The poisoning, hotel bombing, vote scam, drugging the homeless people—omg, it was just sickening. A very wicked group that preyed on the most vulnerable.

            Now it’s what they did to those homeless people that angers me most. I really wish the series had devoted more time to that issue because what they did to those people was unforgivable.

            It was horrible! They drugged them and used them as human weapons. It’s the worst kind of abuse to prey on vulnerable people who truly have no place to go, no money, and may not understand that resources are available. The cult leaders were pure evil. Most of the members were just mixed up.
