5 Best TV With Chromecast Built-In And Ready In 2017

Chromecast has no doubt changed the way we consume content on our televisions today. It was launched a few years ago, as a small $35 accessory for TVs, and was undoubtedly one of Google’s most popular hardware products in recent memory. The product is amazing for streaming content from services like Netflix and YouTube from your Android device.

TV With Chromecast Built-In

Chromecast has seen an evolution now, and customers won’t have to use the same old-gen hardware on their televisions. Users can get the standard Chromecast for $35, or the HDR and 4K capable Chromecast Ultra, which appears to be the preferred choice for most new buyers.

But getting a new Chromecast only applies to televisions that don’t offer the feature by default. Thanks to the advancements made by modern day manufacturers, a handful of televisions today come with Chromecast functionality by default. Let’s have a look at some of these products today.

Sony XBR55X900E 55-Inch 4K Ultra HD

TVs such as this one make it easier for you to access Chromecast without having to get separate hardware for it. It also helps that they come with pretty decent hardware on board, making them worth every penny. This particular offering is a 4K Ultra HD television with a 55-inch display, and since it’s coming from Sony, customers can expect the very best in terms of performance.

The television comes with four inputs including 2 HDMI ports, 1 USB 3.0 port, and 1 USB 2.0 port. It’s powered by Android TV underneath, which gives you access to some of the most popular Android apps and games. It’s an exciting offering to own, especially given the kind of hardware it possesses. Although it’s slightly on the expensive side, customers shouldn’t think twice before investing in this particular offering.

This 55-inch Sony TV will set you back by $1,398 on Amazon right now.

VIZIO 70-inch LED

This 70 or 69.5-inch TV is ideally suited to give an immersive media experience to practically everyone in your living room. Given the sheer size of its display, it also helps to have a large living room. The device also works with Google Home, allowing you to operate the TV with just your voice and Google Assistant. Naturally, there’s Google’s Chromecast built-in by default, allowing you to stream your favorite content from Netflix, Hulu and other providers.

Customers can download the VIZIO SmartCast app from app markets to give them one touch access to all the controls of the television. This app also converts your smartphone into a full blown remote, giving you the access to a myriad of features. The TV also comes with five HDMI inputs, letting you connect to a wide range of products like Blu-Ray players, gaming consoles, etc.

Best Buy hasn’t specified the price in the listing, and interested buyers will have to request for a price from the retailer.

Sony 55-inch OLED

Yet another Sony offering on this list, this particular product comes with a high-end tech on board, providing you the best in terms of entertainment as well as picture quality. The TV is “Smart-enabled” meaning it can automatically stream content from YouTube, Hulu, Netflix, and a lot more by default. This combined with the ability to stream via Chromecast on your smartphone makes this a truly versatile product.

Since this is an OLED TV, the lighting conditions of your home doesn’t matter much. Customers will be treated to better blacks and an overall richer picture quality compared to standard LCD panels. The TV is HDR compatible as well. A feature known as “Acoustic Screen” offers sound from all parts of the TV, giving a theater like feeling.

The manufacturer offers four HDMI inputs and 3 USB 2.0 inputs with the television, giving users extensive options to add other products or compatible devices to the list. The product has received a rating of 4.8 from all the buyers combined, which speaks volumes about its performance. This particular TV will set you back by $3,499.99 via Best Buy, which is quite hefty, but justified given the kind of features it offers out of the box.

Toshiba 49-inch LED

When we talk about televisions, it’s hard to miss out a company like Toshiba. Sure, the company is not as popular in the TV business as its industry rivals are, but that’s not to say that the manufacturer doesn’t have anything to offer. Toshiba’s 49-inch Smart LED TV comes with a wide range of features on board, making it ideally suited for those looking for a TV on a budget. It comes with Chromecast built-in, thus saving you the trouble of having to get one separately. It also comes with YouTube and Netflix apps ready, allowing you to stream the content of your choice right away.

The TV comes with three HDMI inputs and 1 USB input on board, which isn’t quite as much as other manufacturers offer, but will still get the job done comfortably. The 48.5-inch display makes it ideally suited for any living room, allowing the entire family to catch their favorite movies or watch sports together. Adding to its list of features, the device also supports Google Assistant via Google Home for voice guided assistance.

This television is currently selling for $399.99, which is pretty amazing when we check out the feature list of the product.

Google Chromecast Ultra

The Google Chromecast is naturally a better option if you don’t have Chromecast feature built-in with your television. It connects to any standard HDMI powered television, converting your basic television into a smart TV within a matter of few minutes. After setting up the Chromecast, you can use your smartphone to wirelessly stream content from popular services like Netflix, YouTube, and a handful of other providers.

Given the kind of feature set it offers, most manufacturers offer Chromecast functionality with their devices by default. But if you own a slightly older Smart TV, chances are that it won’t have Chromecast built-in. So for TVs like these, it makes sense to purchase Google’s latest Chromecast Ultra, which will set you back by $69.99 via Best Buy. This product also comes with 1 month of free DIRECTV NOW subscription, making the deal even sweeter for prospective buyers.
