*Chromecast with Google TV requires a TV with an HDMI port, a Wi-Fi network, a Google Account, a nearby electrical outlet, and a compatible mobile device.
Chromecast with Google TV:
Use your voice to access your watchlist. To see your watchlist, just press the Google Assistant button on the voice remote and say, “show me my watchlist”.
See your favorite channels in the Live tab. In the Live tab, you can now ‘star’ your favorite channels so you can see them right at the top of your TV guide on Chromecast with Google TV.
