Chromecast Yahoo Sports from Windows PC or Mac
1) Install and launch the Chrome browser on your Windows PC or Mac.
2) Visit Yahoo Sports’ official site: sports.yahoo.com.
3) Connect your Chromecast and PC to the same WiFi network.
4) Right-click on the Chrome browser screen and choose the Cast option.
5) Once your Chromecast device appears on the list, click the drop-down icon located to Sources and select the Cast tab menu.
6) Select your Chromecast device, and the Yahoo Sports site will mirror on the TV. Play the sports video that you want and watch it on the TV.
Note: When mirroring the video content, you can’t mirror the NFL live games. As Yahoo Sports doesn’t own the streaming rights, you are not allowed to screen mirror this content from the Yahoo Sports app.
The above-mentioned procedure is also applicable to Chromecast built-in TVs. The lack of built-in cast support is a big drawback in the Yahoo Sports app. It is surprising to see that a popular app like Yahoo Sports is not offering native cast support. In the Play Store, a lot of users are asking for cast support. Let’s hope that the cast feature will be added soon.
