  1. I do not have a smart.v nor a smartcomputer. Can I still use a Chromecast?

    do I have to have a smartphone or smart T.V. I have a laptop computer with window 10, it is about 3 years old My T.V.is a LCD I don’t know if it is even a HDTV.

    • Our guess is you definitely have an HD TV if it is 3 years old. HD TVs first started being sold around 2005 and old CRTs were then phased out. If you don’t have a Smart TV that is OK. Chromecast makes your TV smart (in other words, internet connected). You just need a decent internet connection.
