Are you looking for a nice Chromecast alternative that’s affordable? The era of the Chromecast knockoffs is upon us. One good knockoff is called Cheapcast. Sometimes these knockoffs actually perform better and are more flexible in features than the original, and they are definitely worth at least giving a try.
Devices like the Cheapcast have been around long before the Chromecast, but they lack one thing. They do not have Google’s engineering behind them. The operating system on the Chromecast is a sophisticated modified version of Google TV OS.
A year before Chromecast came out, if you were to go to one of those online Chinese marketplaces like Madeinchina.com, you would have seen android devices that look just like Google Chrome with HDMI and all of that. These knockoffs are still available today, even via Amazon.
The free CheapCast app (not made by Google) enables nearly any Android device to function as a Chromecast, effectively playing the role of the TV as you stream media from your other Android device.
