Cast content from your device to your Fiber TV

What's casting?

Casting is a Google technology that you can use to stream content from mobile apps and websites straight to your TV screen. With casting, you can access to over 200,000 TV shows and movies, 30 million songs, plus radio, sports, games, and more on your TV.

How does Fiber TV support casting?

Your Fiber TV Box includes Chromecast built‑in, which adds casting technology to your Fiber TV. With Chromecast built‑in, it's simple to enjoy your favorite apps and sites optimized for the big screen—there's no need to attach a Chromecast device to your TV and no need to change inputs on your TV when you cast.

Which apps and sites can I cast to my TV?

Cast content from apps like Netflix, YouTube, HBO GO, Pandora, and Google Play Movies, Photos, and Music on your TV. See the growing list of Chromecast‑enabled apps. Note that some of these apps are not yet supported on Fiber TV.

Which devices support casting to Fiber TV?

You can cast using your Android or iOS device, Chromebook, or any computer with the Chrome browser. When you cast, you can use your device just like a remote control—for example, you can play, pause, or rewind a show.

Have a Google Home device? You can also cast content to your TV from Google Home using voice commands. For details, see the Google Home Help Center.

Notes about casting
  • Apps not supported: Some Chromecast‑enabled apps aren't supported yet on Fiber TV: WatchESPN, Disney Channel, Disney Junior, Disney XD, WATCH ABC, and HBO NOW (HBO GO, included with the HBO package or Premium package, is supported).

  • DRM: When you cast content to your Google Fiber TV, the app or website that you are using applies its own logging practices and policies with regard to user data. That app or website might collect a unique identifier for your casting device for the purpose of digital rights management (DRM). To learn more about how your particular app handles user data, refer to the privacy policies of any apps or websites you use.

  • TOS: Google Fiber's terms of service (TOS) are different than and supersede Chromecast's TOS. Google Fiber logs and handles user data differently.
