The Google Chromecast is a device that allows people to “cast” or broadcast content from personal devices like phones, tablets and computers to bigger screens like a TV through an HDMI connection. The content can be movies, TV shows, music, and even games.
Globe, in collaboration with Google, is offering the new generation of Chromecast as an add-on to their broadband subscription at P99 a month.
