I've praised it before, and with time, Google's Chromecast has been improving at a steady rate. Last week, with an update to the FilmON app, users can now broadcast live local TV to their televisions or monitors.
While it may seem redundant to some to beam live TV to a TV set, in actuality, it may prove very useful to some. For instance, you may be in a low reception area for a certain channel on your over the air antenna, or maybe your provider doesn't provide a particular station that you would like to watch where you live. With FilmON streaming live TV over the internet directly to the Chromecast, it may be a great solution to some folks. Perhaps you have an old monitor with an HDMI port. Now it can be used as a TV.

FilmON is a competitor to Aereo, who promised Chromecast functionality on its Android app as well. With apps such as FilmON, Aereo, Crackle, Netflix, and HBO Go, the Chromecast is fast becoming a great option for a basic home theater setup.
