Google Chromecast

We've had Google TV for awhile now, probably a year or two. It's basically an internet connection device that hooks into your TV. But there are some things we cannot watch on that because of issues between companies, such as, we couldn't go to the CBS website to watch full episodes because it wasn't compatible.
My husband found out about Google Chromecast and I'm loving it. We can broadcast to the TV whatever we have on the computer. :D
The eventual goal is to make it so we don't need something like Dish Network or DirectTV to have TV. But there are a few shows and channels under debate.. Such as 19 Kids and Counting and his sports stuff. and Me TV.. It has old shows on it.
Does anybody else use this or another device?

    That's our thinking, too. We just haven't found a way for the few things that are left.

      I haven't used one, but I would like one! I've heard good things about the Roku. They are similar right?

      I think so. I am muchpreferring the chromecast to Google TV because you can broadcast anything, with the Google TV we were limited.

      I don't know much about them.. The Google TV is a little box by the TV.. The Chromecast is a little USB stick plugged into the TV then an app downloadedon our computers.

        No, we don't have anything like that. Just the plain old internet and Hulu, Netflix and Amazon.
