Simplify Chromecast

Community Member

I only need to watch a few channels with Chromecast. How can I set up a favorites list to simplify operating it? My wife especially has difficulty with technology.

Hi Glen-39,


Thanks for reaching out. If you have a Chromecast with Google TV device, please check the steps listed below to see how you can choose your favorite channels:


  1. On your Google TV, go to the Live tab.
  2. In the “All channels” view, find a channel you want to set as one of your favorites.
  3. Navigate to the channel name and select it.
    • A star will show up to confirm that the channel is now in your favorites.
  4. To browse what’s playing on your favorite channels, switch from the “All channels” view to the “Favorite channels” view.

Tip: To remove a channel from your favorites, navigate to the channel name and select it. The star will disappear, and the channel will be removed from your favorites.


I hope that helps.
