Setting Up Chromecast

Last Updated: May 28, 2014 05:56PM PDT
iPad, iPhone, and Android users with a dual-tuner Simple.TV can now watch live and recorded content using Chromecast. If you haven't already, you'll need to ensure you have the latest version of our application from the iTunes App Store or Google Play. 

In addition, we are continuing our effort to bring this functionality to our first generation customers with single-tuner DVRs. The video streams from the single-tuner DVR are currently not compatible with Chromecast and we are making changes to accommodate Chromecast support for these models as quickly as possible.

Before you begin, make sure your Chromecast device is setup and connected to your home Wi-Fi network. Your phone or tablet must also be connected to the same home Wi-Fi network.
  1. Launch the Simple.TV app on your phone or tablet and sign-in.
  2. On your tablet, click the cast at the top of your screen. Alternatively, on your phone, click the view menu and click the Cast icon .
  3. Select your Chromecast device from the list to launch the Simple.TV app on your television.
  4. Find your favorite show and click play to begin watching!

Click the Cast icon on the top of your screen (tablet) or in the view menu (phone)

That's it!  You're ready to Cast!
