Commercial after Commercial

If you love watching commercials, then you will love google chromecast
Its one commercial after another, then another and another and then some more

Was great when working

Was a great device when working but close to warranty expiring the toggle buttons stopped working - so you couldnt move to select. A replacement was sent which seemed great but a few months later the same thing has happened again. The replacement has no warranty and faulty. Google states only the original warranty period is honoured. Wouldnt purchase again. Show details

Complete crap

Used it for few months then one-day the remote started to get very warm in my hand and I discovered it was shorting the batteries out. I traded emails backwards and forwards with customer services for about a month to get a replacement but just gave up as it was too much hassle. The remote sucked anyway as it is more slippery than a bar of soap. I used it for months using my phone as a remote then one day when the power was switched off the Google tv went back to pairing mode and wouldn't let me pass without the remote, I fucked around with it for ages trying everything I can think of but the final solution was to throw it out the window for my own sanity. Google, your customer service sucks and you can get fudged. Show details

Excellent Device

Purchased this device a few months ago to replace a faulty / useless Amazon fire stick. Chrome cast works perfectly and I have had many hours of trouble free binging of my favourite music, movies and shows. Set up was very simple and chrome cast is a significantly superior device when compared to Amazon fire stick.

Two weeks of use and now remote wont work

3 hour setup. Have had for 2 weeks. Was told how reliable new tech is. Remote suddenly wont pair with the TV. Cheap flimsy remote. Have been through every forum and chat room site. Batteries changed. Dongle reset. Relinked to WiFi. Friday night ruined. Absolute nightmare. Wish had never purchased. Show details

Have fun spending $300+ a year on batteries!

I would probably enjoy using this product if not for the insane volume of batteries the remote burns through. Every TWO days (no exaggeration) the remote needs new batteries. I’ve contacted support about this thinking maybe I’d gotten a faulty remote, but nope. And the advice I got? “Have you considered purchasing better quality batteries?” Well, have you considered making better quality products? After 18 months I’m finally ditching this waste of money and getting an Apple TV— I hear the remote is rechargeable at least! Show details

My old TV is just like a new one

This device changes an old Sony 46inc dumb TV into a Smart TV and gives it a whole new lease of life! It doesn't make it any easier to keep the children off the TV though! I'd love a PIN on start.

Questions & Answers

Has it been updated at all? It could need an update or rebooting if you can.

Does It allow access to free to air channels as Telstra TV allows the tv aerial to be plugged into the box and does it have Apple TV+ as Choice review says no but the adds show Ted Lasso on Apple


My CWGTV does not detect 4k on my 4k TV. It does for about 1 minute then goes back to 1080p. Reading between the lines it looks like CWGTV in 4k does not happen in Australia. Has anyone heard if that is true?
