This works for pretty much any web content. I have an HDMI cable hooked up to my laptop and watch web content that way quite regularly. +Geoff Rasmussen's method using Chromecast costs about the same as my extra long HDMI cable, and gives him the added benefit of choosing his content wirelessly through his phone, tablet or computer.

This may be the new logo, but the web browser tab's mini-logo is still the same. Yikes! Let's work on branding uniformity, Google+.
 
We're getting a little logo love today too. Hope you like it! g.co/evolve
