Google Sells Ethernet Adapter for Chromecast

There are millions of Google Chromecast users out there and many of those will struggle to get a decent Wi-Fi signal to the streaming device. Finally there is a solution for that: Google Chromecast Ethernet Adapter.

Google Chromecast is one of the, if not the most popular video streaming stick. The Chromecast stick sells for $29.99 on Amazon and is battling the Amazon Fire TV stick for the top position in the electronics best-seller list.

One of the big issues with streaming devices is to get them connected with a good internet connection. In my house this is often a problem using Wi-fi. If the Wi-Fi signal is too low where the TV is the Chromecast will not work properly. I am actually using Powerline adapters and a second Wi-fi router to get a good signal for TV connected devices. Now Google offers a simpler solution for the Chormecast. Google offers now the Ethernet Adapter for Chromecast. 

With this adapter users can use an ethernet connection instead fo Wi-Fi to connect Chromecast. The accessory sells for $15 in the United States. It is a currently sold out. Google will bring the Ethernet Adapter to Europe as country specific product images are already published on hte Google Store

The Ethernet Adapter for Chromecast connect via an included USB cable to the Chromecast. Ann Ethernet cable runs from the router to the power supply unit of the Ethernet adapter. That is correct. The ethernet adapter needs a power socket.

Chromecast supports the most popular video streaming services including HBO GO, Netflix, YouTube, Hulu Plus, Pandora, Watch ESPN, Crunchyroll, MLS, Crackle, Rdio, MLB.TV, Google Play Movies & TV, Google Play Music, and Chrome. 

We expect a new generation of streaming sticks this fall in time for the Holiday shopping season. It is possible that Google will offer a Chromecast stick that has an ethernet port integrated.
