Go from your phone, tablet, or laptop to your big screen in an instant. With Chromecast built-in, you can cast all your favourite movies, shows, apps games and more directly to your TV.


What is casting?

Like magic, but no spells involved. Casting is the action of sending a stream of content from one device to a receiver in your TV Hub.
All you need is your TV Hub and a Chromecast- enabled app on your mobile, tablet or computer. Click below to see all the apps you can use Chromecast built-in with.

ChromeCast built-in not working?

Some app providers use a customised version of the Chromecast built-in sender which may conflict with the receiver on your TalkTalk TV Hub.

If audio plays at the same time from both the TV Hub channels and/or on-demand/Play Store apps, first try pressing the Home button on your TV Hub remote to see if this resolves your issue. If the issue persists you may need to close the app in system settings to stop it completely. To do this, simply:

  1. Press the Home button on your TalkTalk TV Hub remote
  2. Select Settings (cog)
  3. Select Apps See all Apps
  4. Scroll to the App you wish to stop and select Force Stop
