While many new 4K TVs have Chromecast built-in, some people want the benefit of casting without having to use the Android or Google TV interface. With a Chromecast Ultra or Chromecast with Google TV, you can stream in 4K, HDR, or Dolby Vision or play 4K HDR games with Stadia Pro on a wider range of TV brands. We’re here to help you find the best 4K TVs for Chromecast — either built-in or as a peripheral — with the LG C1 OLED TV standing at the top of the list.

While the LG CX previously topped our best 4K TVs for Chromecast list — and is still worth buying if you want a discounted model — the new LG C1 OLED TV only improves on its sterling predecessor for visual quality, gaming, and streaming. Its new Alpha a9 Gen. 4 processor will upscale your cast content to 4K beautifully and naturally, something the Chromecast can’t handle on its own. And it adds four HDMI 2.1 ports, which enable 4K gaming at 120Hz if you own a next-gen console like the PS5.
