Platform UPS COST Google Interface

The Chromecast with Google TV is one of our favorite media streamers and an Editors' Choice in the category, though at $50 it's more expensive than the original $35 Chromecast.

That's because it has an on-screen interface that Chromecast initially lacked, and supports 4K video. Google is now returning to the streamer's cheap roots, with a 1080p version of the Chromecast that costs even less than the first model.

The Chromecast with Google TV (HD) is the second Chromecast device to feature the Google TV smart TV platform built-in. As its name indicates, it only supports streaming up to 1080p content, a quarter the resolution of 4K.

The new model targets users who still have HDTVs and haven't made the jump to 4K, or who might use older TVs in guest rooms, garages, or any place they wouldn't serve as the main TV of the home.
