How to watch Netflix on Chromecast

Google’s Chromecast works differently to most connected devices. Rather than have its own app store and user interface on the device itself, it works with smartphone or tablet apps in order to control the shows and films you want to watch.

A Chromecast plugs into a TV’s HDMI port and you open the Netflix app on your phone or tablet. You will spy a Chromecast icon (a TV with a Wi-Fi symbol on top) at the top of the screen. Tap it and it links with your Chromecast dongle. Then, after starting a show or movie, tap the same icon at the top of the video again and it will start to play on your TV instead.

You can then use your mobile device as the remote control. You can also use it for anything else you fancy, such as make calls or browse the internet, as Chromecast streams the video over the internet directly. It doesn’t stream the content from your phone or tablet.


The Chromecast Ultra will play content in 4K Ultra HD and with HDR.

How to watch Netflix on a PC or Mac

You can watch Netflix content on any computer through a web browser and the website.


You can also plug a laptop into your main TV and watch Netflix on the bigger screen if you don’t have any other device connected.
