    Default Chromecast on Primetv catchup

    I am trying to cast to our tv using Chromecast PrimeTV Catchup and can't see the cast icon. Is it possible to do this?

    Thanks,
    Andrew

    I didnít think prime supported chrome cast. They donít have an on demand app as far as I know

    If watching on the web site using Chrome - can't you cast it? No experience with Chromecast, but I thought using Chrome you could cast anything?
    Doesn't Chrome have a menu option (3 dots RHS top corner) to cast?

    May be way off track.....

    Generally I think you're correct. But I think some web sites can block casting...and given sky owns prime that wouldn't surprise me.

    Chromecast PrimeTV Catchup - I've used this successfully too.
    Now-if I could just remember where I left my brain...
