Most helpful reviews

Claire, Barrow-in-Furness

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Once I realized that by turning my Sky box off it made the Chromecast work better, we had no issues.

It is used mainly for Netflix and we are happy with the results.
Bad points:
That it doesn't work properly if Sky is still connected.

David, Steyning Retired engineer

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Reviewer left no comment
Bad points:
The problem is with the number of compatible applications. At present the only catch-up TV application that supports Chromecast is iPlayer. And the only browser that can be used to stream video is Chrome. I don't want to watch youTube videos all the time.

Ben, London

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It's great, cheap and portable, and easy to use, if you're tech savvy.
Bad points:
Features wise it could do with being suitable to more apps / programs, but I'm aware that it works the other way too so. . .
