Your shared TV in your virtual living room. Launch Kast TV in your party to watch movies and browse content, streamed directly from the cloud.
Hang out and enjoy watching together with your friends!
Kast TV is available from your party controls in your party. Just hit the TV icon and launch content from Kast TV’s offering. If you are not in your own party, you’ll need kasting permission from the party moderators to start streaming Kast TV content. Here’s a quick guide to help you get started.
When opening up Kast TV, you will see dedicated channels with free to stream third-party content (currently Tubi, YouTube coming soon & more to come) available for all, and Kast TV’s own library with films and series, available for Kast Premium members. Kast TV’s content offering will evolve over time based on community feedback - we are eager to add more and more content that you like!
Kast TV is not a virtual browser. With Kast TV, you can browse and stream content from our growing list of partners and third party services in your watch parties.
Anyone with kasting rights can launch Kast TV in a watch party. The person who started the stream has the ability to control playback functions (stop, resume, etc) but anyone with kasting rights can replace the content.
When you are watching Kast TV, you are streaming content directly from the cloud, you are not sharing it from your computer. This means that streaming from Kast TV requires less bandwidth and much less effort from your computer or laptop. You can also share your video and talk over videos streamed from Kast TV regardless if you are a streamer or not - kasting permission is required to talk in the party.
Yes, you can watch content being played from Kast TV. Streaming from Kast TV is currently available on Kast web and the desktop app, but it’s coming soon to mobile.
You can watch channels with free third-party content with your free Kast account, but Kast TV’s own content library is only available for Kast Premium members. If someone with a Premium subscription is playing content in a party, they can leave their stream on for the others to watch even if they leave the party.
Absolutely, Kast TV is an additional feature on top of already existing ones. You can still choose to kast from your laptop or computer.
You can watch and talk at the same time when streaming from Kast TV without an echo or having to use a third party software. Select your microphone as your audio input when you start sharing your video and mic on top of Kast TV.
If you are a Kast Premium member, you can play content from Kast TV’s content library in your parties and your friends with a free account can watch it with you.
