From classics like Family Ties to acclaimed originals like The Good Fight to fresh hits like A Million Little Things, 10 All Access has something for everyone. The streaming service launched in Australia at the end of 2018 and offers a vast catalogue of TV series, most of them owned by CBS in the US. The platform comes with a one-month free trial and great device compatibility, meaning you can access your favourite shows on a variety of devices, from smartphones and tablets to Android TV. Even better, 10 All Access is compatible with Google Chromecast, enabling users without a smart TV to stream content on the big screen in an inexpensive and user-friendly way.
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:
- Plug your Chromecast dongle into one of the HDMI ports on your TV.
- Plug your Chromecast's power cable into a suitable power socket.
- Switch your TV to the appropriate HDMI input.
- If you haven't already configured your Chromecast, follow the on-screen prompts to connect it to your home Wi-Fi network.
- 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.
- Find the "Cast" icon and click or tap it.
- Select the name of your Google Chromecast.
- 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.
