5. Streaming on Chromecast

The end of the fight between Amazon and Google in 2019 allowed Prime Video to finally become compatible with Chromecast. With this, users of the service can transmit content from the cell phone to the TV even if it is not smart, as long as the device running a version of Chrome is connected to the HDMI port. The operation is similar to that of other apps, such as Netflix: when connecting via Wi-Fi with the device, the Amazon Prime of the smartphone turns into a remote control.

To find Ultra HD material, type «4K» in the search and use the «Refine» button to filter by movies or series only.
