How to know if your TV is compatible with Stadia?


May 1, 2019
You may be wondering if Stadia is compatible with your current TV. There are no products with the technology built-in right now, but you could add Stadia functionality to any HDMI-equipped display for just $70 thanks to the Chromecast Ultra.

Chromecast was originally created as an affordable streaming device that makes use of web browser technology to display content. You can stream movies, music, and even beam photos over to any TV you want through Chromecast. You can also play games, but though they're fun, the games available for it right now are really simple and can be a bit clunky.

With Stadia, Google will leverage that technology to offer console-quality gaming that only needs the aforementioned Chromecast Ultra, the official Stadia controller, and a capable internet connection, so your gaming "console" essentially fits in your pocket. Stay on the lookout for Chromecast Ultra deals as we head toward the launch of Stadia, something that'll happen at some point in 2019.
