Google Chromecast is a small dongle that gets plugged into the HDMI port of your television, connects to Wi-Fi and lets you stream content directly to your TV from your smartphone, tablet or laptop. It's easy to set up and even easier to use, so you can watch content in style without too much hassle. 10 All Access is compatible with both Chromecast 2nd Generation and Chromecast Ultra (the latter enables you to stream 4K video quality). Here's how to get started:

How to set up 10 All Access on Google Chromecast

Regardless of which Chromecast model you own, you only need to follow a few steps to be up and running:

  1. Plug your Chromecast dongle into one of the HDMI ports on your TV.
  2. Plug your Chromecast's power cable into a suitable power socket.
  3. Switch your TV to the appropriate HDMI input.
  4. If you haven't already configured your Chromecast, follow the on-screen prompts to connect it to your home Wi-Fi network.
  5. Open up the 10 All Access app on your mobile device or the 10 All Access website in the Google Chrome web browser on your computer.
  6. Find the "Cast" icon and click or tap it.
  7. Select the name of your Google Chromecast.
  8. Pick a TV show or movie and hit play to stream it to your TV.

Once you've connected 10 All Access to your Chromecast and start streaming, your computer or mobile device will act as a remote for the video on your TV. You can pause, resume, skip and choose new content from the app or website and your TV will respond accordingly. In other words, you have access to all the options you're used to with the benefit of a larger, sharing-friendly screen.

Frequently asked questions

Have a look at these FAQs if you're having trouble setting up or watching 10 All Access on Google Chromecast.

I'm having trouble casting a show on 10 All Access. How can I fix it?

While the streaming process with Chromecast should go smoothly, you may encounter occasional issues when casting your shows to the big screen like freezing or crashing. Here are a few things you can try if the unspeakable happens:

  • Disconnect both the device you're casting from and your Chromecast device from Wi-Fi. Restart your router and connect them again.
  • Make sure that both your Chromecast device and the device you're casting from are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
  • Make sure that the 10 All Access app is up-to-date and update it if necessary.

How do I enable closed captions to stream 10 All Access via Chromecast?

Use the device that is casting to touch the Closed Captions icon when your video is playing through Chromecast. If you're using a laptop, you also need to toggle the Closed Captions switch to On from the dialog panel that opens.

Can I continue browsing my phone/tablet while using Chromecast?

Absolutely. You can use your device normally while casting on Chromecast, which means you're free to browse Twitter while binge-watching the Charmed revival.

How do I get back to my TV when casting?

Simply use your TV remote. The input (or source) button on the remote will allow you to switch from HDMI back to broadcast television.

I can't see the Cast icon. Why?

For the Cast icon to appear, you need to make sure you have the latest version of iOS or Android on your mobile device and you have the latest version of the 10 All Access app. Also, check to see if your device is connected to the same wireless network as your Chromecast. That should do the trick.
