Since Chromecast was first introduced in July 2013, it has defined the segment of streaming media dongles around the world.
It started the movement to cut cable TVs around the world, and speed up the shift from viewing media from TV to over the internet.
At the time of Chromecast’s launch, YouTube was the only free online video streaming platform compatible with Chromecast.
Fast forward to 2017,
There are more than 275 apps with Google Cast support and more than 23 major video hosting services, and even more smaller services, around the world.
With so many choices of video platforms to consume video contents from, it is difficult and time consuming to find interesting videos you want by switching between platforms.
In order to solve this,
The team behind EZCast built the EZChannel to aggregate major video platforms in one handy app, to make video viewing a truly cross platform experience.
EZChannel was created in June 2016 to be an online video aggregator.
The app helps people stream videos across multiple video hosting platforms.

With numerous media apps supporting Chromecast to launch on big screens, EZChannel is no different.
The user interface of EZChannel is easy enough to make casting as a click of a button.
Where is the button?
When you navigate to the start of the EZChannel page, you will notice a “Google Cast” icon in the bottom left corner of the screen.
Click on the button at the lower left of the screen to begin casting.
Clicking on the “Google Cast” icon takes you to a list of compatible devices connected to the same local Wi-Fi network that you can screencast to, such as Chromecast and EZCast.
