4K and HDR Support
4K UHD's high resolution enables improved clarity over 1080p Full HD while HDR provides deep, rich colors.
Note: To view content in 4K or HDR, a 4K- or HDR-capable display and reliable broadband internet connection are also required.
Remote Control from Your Device
Just tap the Cast button in mobile apps and websites you already use to start casting right to your TV. Use your phone, tablet, or laptop to play, pause, and adjust the volume; all without draining your battery
Chromecast Ultra works with popular apps you like Netflix, YouTube, Google Play, Pandora, and more, enabling you to choose your favorite movies, TV shows, songs, sporting events, and games.
Note: 4K not available on all apps. Some apps require subscriptions.
Mirror Your Android Phone or Chrome Browser
See anything on your Android phone or tablet on your TV's larger screen, or use your laptop to cast any website from the Chrome browser. If it's online, you can cast it.
Dual-Band Wi-Fi Connectivity
Chromecast Ultra is designed to keep video resolution high and buffering low thanks to integrated 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi support and a built-in 1x2 SIMO antenna system. Because content is streamed straight from the cloud, movies and TV shows play without interruption, even if you and your phone leave the room.
For users with slow Wi-Fi connections, Chromecast Ultra comes with a power adapter with an integrated Ethernet port, so you can plug directly into your home network.
Google on Board
Built-in Google support allows you to easily cast content from Google Play Movies, Google Play Music, YouTube, and Chrome web browser.

This is the same as the normal chrome cast. Google themselves have removed the option menu so you cant set the streaming resolution anymore. The chrome cast automatically sets it. Even on fibre it drops from 4k even 2.5k with full wifi bars. You really need to plug in the enternet cable to see 1080p or above. Even the serect menu doesn't show as Google has now patched this.
As for the speed it's slightly faster that standard but by a coplue to seconds really not worth the extra 50-60 dollars.
Tried this on 3 TVs before I could get it to work. The device itself is fine, but the setup process is so automatic that if it doesn't work, there is no clue as to exactly why - it certainly wasn't obvious in my case. Needs an 'expert' mode for those of us that know a little more about networking. Google's "help" is less than helpful. If it works for you first time - it's great.
Works exactly as expected. 4k quality is great on YouTube and Netflix services alike. Relatively easy setup however if your not a tech geek like myself it may not be very obvious to get the chrome cast up and running. However once fully setup, using its features is simple and convenient.
Reduced price but still works A-OK
Hi there. I connected the device onto my home TV, via HDMI cable...plugged in the ethernet cable and watched as it automatically did an update. After that the device has worked seamlessly and we're able to mirror our Android devices very easily and quickly. All in all a very easy and simple way for us to connect an android device to our TV. Thanks.
This is listed on trademe as we speak
3 stars because in all fairness we have managed to binge-watch a lot of content with this thing. If you don't mind constant advertising when streaming free stuff (such as youtube free), then consider this review to be 4-star.. Where it loses its other star is its constantly disconnecting from your android device so if you want to rewind back after having had your phone sleeping for a bit, then prepare to have your blood pressure levels tested!
I bought the Microsoft 4k wireless display adapter which adds a 'wireless monitor' to your laptop and this Chromecast thing went on Trademe faster than you can say "this chromecast thing is turd!'. ...view more
Love and soooo happy with my purchase, cheaper than paying for Sky and loosing channels from atmospheric weather. Highly recommend this product to all.
What you would expect..
It is a Google Ultra Chrome cast.
I paired it up with an ancient old TV so I have not really tested it all that thoroughly.
What I can say about it though is that it effortlessly streams content and loading times are snappy. Performance is solid and reliable.
Great product and service was fast and staff were friendly!
Same as chromecast, with a little bit more
Purchased as our smart TV doesn't have all of our subscription apps available, but they're all available to Chromecast. Decided to go for the Ultra for the additional 4k benefit and potentially in future being able to harness the ethernet port to avoid wifi delays.
Overall pretty happy with it, it does exactly what it says on the box - 4k streaming. The only downside I can think of is if you don't use the included special micro-usb wall charger it's limited to 1080p? Even if you have a charger with the correct rating. Not a major, just seems strange.
Great once its working
It may take you a while to get this talking to your other devices depending on your network settings, but it's great once you get there.
Perfect for 4k streaming
Great for streaming 4k 60 content to your television straight from your devices, was worth the purchase
Just does what it does well.
depending on your network set up its a little tricky. but once its all sorted its brilliant :) easy to use
