How to Cast Apple TV Shows on Your Chromecast Using a Computer 💻 and Google Chrome Browser 🌐

Guide: Cast Apple TV Shows on Chromecast

Welcome to another intriguing guide from your favorite tech platform. In today’s write-up, we will be discussing how you can cast your Apple TV shows to your Chromecast. Yep, you heard right! Regardless of the streaming box you have, we can make it happen right on your TV, as long as you have a computer and an internet connection. So gear up for an exciting journey to a more seamless streaming experience 🥳!


Ensure Internet Access and Google Chrome Installation

The first prerequisites to this fun experience are a computer 💻 with internet access and a Google Chrome Browser. Google Chrome, for those unfamiliar, is a free, widely available internet browser developed by Google. You can readily download and install it on your operating system, including Windows, MacOS, Linux, etc. Should you lack this essential tool, simply go to Google ➡ search for Chrome download ➡ click on the first link from ‘’ ➡ then click on the download Chrome button. If you encounter any difficulties during installation, feel free to leave a comment below, and we promise to assist you 🤓.


Login to Apple TV

Now that you have Google Chrome installed, the next step is to visit the Apple TV Plus login page or simply type into your browser, and sign in to your account.


Select Your Preferred Show and Initiate Casting

Once you’ve logged in, choose the show you intend to watch and initiate casting to your Chromecast or the TV that has Chromecast connected, if available. Let’s assume we want to play a trailer, for instance. So go ahead and play your chosen trailer (or show), then pause it immediately to avoid any copyright issues 🚫.


Cast From Within the Tab or Through Setting

Now, to perform the casting, there are two methods. The first one is to right click on the video and select the cast option. This calls up a ‘cast tab’ with various devices you can cast to. Simply click on the preferred Chromecast, check if the source is ‘tab’ (usually it should be on ‘tab’ since we’ve initiated the cast from within the tab) and there you have it!

The second method to cast the video is by clicking on the settings icon in the video and selecting the cast option. It essentially does the same thing as the first method. Once you click on the Chromecast you want to cast the Apple TV content to, you’ll see it connecting. And just like that, you’ve mirrored Apple TV on your Chromecast 🥳.

Conclusion: 🏁

And voilà! That’s a quick run-through on how you can cast your beloved Apple TV shows to your Chromecast right at the comfort of your home. Should you encounter any hurdles during this journey, or if you’re aware of an even simpler method, let us know in the comment section. For now, sit back, relax, and enjoy streaming in its most user-friendly form 🛋️🍿.
