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.
