GoPlay is a Belgian video streaming service where you can watch various films, series and shows. The streaming service is free to use and can be reached via a website or app. Watching on a PC or smartphone is not ideal, so how do you put the content on the big screen of your television?
The Belgian video streaming service GoPlay has been launched by SBS Belgium. You can watch the programs of four different channels: Play4, Play5, Play6 and Play7.
You watch programs that have already been broadcast, but also find exclusive content.
Watch GoPlay programs
You view GoPlay programs in two ways: via the website or via the app. In both cases you need an account, but you don't have to pay for anything.
Instead, you will see commercials while watching, so be prepared for that.
For that reason, it would be useful if you could stream the various films and series from the app to the Chromecast in or on the TV.
However, that is unfortunately not possible. Both apps do not offer Chromecastsupport. And that's a pity, because that means you have to work with a detour.
Admittedly, the detour requires little of your time and patience, but competing services show that it can be done easier.
✔ Operate with remote control + app
✔ Very affordable
✔ Good value for money
GoPlay to Chromecast stream
Until then, you need to proceed in the following way. Let's hope GoPlay in the future at least Chromecastreleases support or else launches a smart TV app.
Do you want to stream the content to your TV now? Then you proceed as follows.
Remember that when you cast a tab, everyone in the house can watch that tab. Make sure you only cast tabs that don't contain any personal information.
Where it used to be possible to use Goplay and Airplay together, that is unfortunately no longer an option.
The reason stated by the company for this is that advertisements must be played on the smartphone. So this wouldn't happen on the big screen. This is not a desirable user experience.
It is possible to use Goplay Airplay via the browser, but this must be on an Apple device. If the specific video supports Airplay, you will automatically see the icon for this appear on the player.
