What will be different about it (other than the optional plug)?

By the way the Chromecast does not work with all routers... you may want to check that your router will support it first.

Will this work on a "non smart" TV once the TV has a HDMI connection,or does it have to be a smart TV? Sorry if this has been addressed before.

This looks really interesting.
But i'm mightily confused with all these newfangled gizmos. I'm generation X, not a skinny-jeaned milllenial so barely know what netflix is, so be kind.

Seriously though, we're talking about streaming content from Chrome browser (have) from a smartphone (i have)/tablet (have)/PC with Windows 7 (have) to a hd TV (not sure if i have, how do i check this, i have a hdmi slot on my TV).

But where is the content from.
What app do i need to install.
Or is it an addon for Chrome.
Is it free (It's Google so i'm hoping yes).
What cool stuff do you recommend to stream (movie services, music etc) with this.

I need to lie down.

Just FYI, Plex now works without Plex Pass.

Can anyone confirm if xbmc can be installed/run on the chromecast independently or only streamed to it?
