A Google Chromecast device lets you 'cast' video streamed from Ameba on your Android smartphone or tablet, directly to your television. No smart TV, DVD/Blu-ray player, game console or set-top box needed.  With Chromecast support in Ameba, you can easily enjoy your favorite children's entertainment on your TV. You can use your device as a remote control or even a 'second screen', which means busy parents can take back control of their phones and tablets while their child watches great Ameba shows on their TV.

"You asked. We listened. It is available now.," said Tony Havelka, Ameba's founder and CEO. "We give kids, moms and dads another convenient option for safe, smart entertainment."
