Google Back In The TV Business

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

The company on Wednesday introduced Chromecast, 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 company said its goal is to create a device with zero setup time, no learning curve, and one that works with all platforms and devices.

The $35 Chromecast is a radically different approach to TV than Google's previous failed attempt, the Nexus Q. It's smaller, cheaper and available starting today.


Chromecast supports both Android and iOS devices. At its event, Google demonstrated the device using a Windows laptop and an iPhone.
