Want to watch live television on your Google Chromecast? Perhaps you want an alternative to pay-tv, but you're still a news junkie? Here's a list of some of the English-language news channels you can get on the big screen.

Not got a Google Chromecast? They're inexpensive devices that plug straight into your TV. While Amazon don't sell them, you'll find them in your local Best Buy, JB-Hifi or Currys.

Via YouTube

Click on the below link to open these channels in YouTube, and then hit the 'cast' button to get them on your television. These links also work in most YouTube-enabled smart TVs and set-top boxes, and work on Android and iOS phones.

YouTube doesn't give live streams a permanent link, so these links may have changed. However, you should be able to search to find their new pages.

From your Android phone or Chromebook

A little more clunky, but with an Android phone or Chromebook, you'll find a Cast button in the video of the following channels by visiting the websites below. Where an official feed exists, we've used it rather than third-party aggregators.

Using your laptop's tab-casting feature

Even more clunky than above, but if you are running Chrome with the Chromecast extension on your laptop, you can view these channels on your TV by clicking the Cast extension logo and casting a live tab. This is unlikely to work brilliantly, but it's better than nothing...

Know of any more? Have any links changed? Let us know in the comments!

It may be worth considering having an article on Kodi. For example the World News Live add-on has many of the news channels featured here.

Kodi is on Windows, iOS, Android and other smaller software platforms and can be watched on tv through Android TV or Amazon Fire TV.

However I've watched Sky News via YouTube on Chromecast and can recommend it.

Unlike most streaming devices, they do not have a built-in interface. To start streaming, you open the app you want to stream and tap the Cast button. Both the Chromecast and Chromecast Ultra can be controlled hands-free by pairing it with your Google Home device. Bendigo Carpet Cleaners

The bigger deal, though, is that live TV streaming services are streaming services, which means you can watch them on all sorts of streaming devices and use all sorts of streaming technologies with them, including Chromecast.
