Make sure your Chromecast is plugged into the power supply and TV using an HDMI port that is HDCP 1.4-compatible. Next, connect your Chromecast device to the same Wi-Fi network as your device.

Download the Google Home app on your iOS or Android device to control your Chromecast. If you're using a Mac or PC, make sure you have the latest version of Google Chrome downloaded as it's the only browser you can use to cast.

Then, sign into BINGE on your iOS or Android device, or Mac or PC, depending on which way you're casting.

Navigate to the Xbox Store in the main menu. Search for the BINGE app in the store then select it. Tap "Install" and once the app download is complete, the BINGE app is available to use in your "My games & apps" section.

Amazon Fire TV

Use the main menu on your Fire TV device to search for the BINGE app, select it, then choose "Get" or the shopping cart icon to download the app. You can't sign up to BINGE via Fire TV, so you'll need to already have an active subscription beforehand. Open the app from the home screen and select sign in. Use a smartphone or tablet to scan the QR code displayed on the screen and select the pop-up that appears. An 8-digit code will already be there, so select confirm. You may be asked to enter your login details, but if not, your TV should automatically login.
