The $35 Chromecast device plugs into the back of your TV via HDMI. Once there it is able to receive via wi-fi content from a computer, tablet or smartphone and display it on the television. That includes Netflix and YouTube videos.

 

Chromecast is compatible with Android and iOS mobile OSes, Chromebooks (obviously) and Chrome browsers in Macs and PCs.
