I very much doubt that there will be any differences between the US and international versions. But we won't know until people actually receive them here.

Mine came from Amazon.com shipped to my Sister in Law in Texas who brought it up at Christmas time. The other thing is that my Netflix account is a "US" account which is registered in the US and...

I got a Chromecast around Christmas. It works well with Youtube and Plex - but you have to buy a Plex subscription. I haven't yet played with my router to redirect calls to Google's 8.8.8.8 DNS to...

What do you mean by that? Doesn't every TV sold in about the last 9 years have HDMI? I have two TVs without HDMI, one of them I bought in early 2002, the other in mid 2003. Every TV I has bought...

What appears to be buggy is the mirroring of the browser screen which Google admits is just in beta. The core functionality of stuff like Netflix and Youtube seems fine from what I have read.
