Google Cast is the brand name of Google’s TV software package. It can give you multi-screen experiences by connecting the devices like your smartphone, tablet or computer to your TV. Admittedly using Google’s Cast platform is a bit different, particularly for those who are familiar with Smart TVs, or folks who are used to surfing their cable company’s menu or guide for content on the screen. Because the content doesn’t reside inside the Cast TV, but it is accessed via your phone, it’s a different mindset to get used to. But once you try it, you’ll find it’s easy to operate and get accustomed to.
You may be thinking it will be a little while before you can afford an upgrade to a stunning 4K UHD new technology TV. That time may be closer than you think with LG’s new 4K 55” 3D Smart TV (55UB8500). They have priced it very aggressively while keeping all the excellent features that you could want in such a TV. It is one of the lowest priced 4K TV’s on the market and comes as a WebOS powered Smart TV, an IPS panel, and passive 3D. This is probably the best value 4K TV on the market.
