In Short

Chromecast is Google's Apple TV-like device that lets you beam content from your phone, tablet, or Chrome browser to your big-screen HDTV. It doesn't have all the fancy built-in functionality of the Apple TV but it also doesn't cost anywhere nearly as much — only $35.

Plug the Chromecast into the HDMI port for signal and the USB port for power and you're ready to go.
