There is also a version to deliver digital audio.
The contents is either free, or something you previously subscribed to such as: Youtube, Shomi, CTV (Canadian Television network) Go, Netflix, Spotify, CraveTV, Google Play Movies, Just Dance Now. There is no monthly charge for the dongle.
You can buy the dongles from Google or affiliate stores (oddly, not Amazon). You choose your content using a remote that talks to the dongle.
To work well, you will want high speed cable or fibre Internet access.
