Thanks so much. I will try setting up with my laptop. And thanks for the heads up on data use. I'll keep an eye on it if I'm successful. I won't be using all the time, just hate streaming on small phone screen.

You  have to use a phone or tablet to setup a Chromecast and then they tell you an unlimited data phone is not an option to use on the chromecast and a Chromecast using a hotspot wifi connection uses  massive amounts of data. Since a wifi hotspot is limited to 15 GB or whatever your screwed!! Sounds about right for todays tech robber barons.
