You can right now catch up on the latest season of House of Cards while riding in comfort inside back of your Cadillac. By combining existing technologies including an occupant’s smartphone, a Google Chromecast, as well as also in-car 4G LTE Wi-Fi, the CT6 sedan as well as also Escalade SUV right now allow for in-car online streaming video coming from apps like Netflix, Hulu, or YouTube—because physical media like DVDs as well as also Blu-rays are so passé.
The setup will be familiar to anyone who uses a Chromecast or Apple TV device at home. The 2017 CT6 sedan as well as also Escalade SUV both offer rear-seat entertainment screens with an HDMI input. With the Chromecast device plugged in to that will input as well as also connected to the automobile’s Wi-Fi network, passengers can connect a smartphone to the Wi-Fi network as well as also use apps to stream video onto the rear screens—as well as also onto the front infotainment screen if the automobile is usually in park. inside CT6, each 10.0-inch screen operates independently, as well as also audio can be played through any combination of the automobile’s sound system or wireless headphones.

Cadillac is usually including a free Chromecast device with the purchase of any CT6 that will has the rear-seat entertainment option (the item costs $2700 on the Premium Luxury trim as well as also is usually standard on the Platinum trim). The Escalade’s entertainment setup, which is usually priced at $1720 on Luxury designs as well as also is usually standard on Premium Luxury as well as also Platinum trims, only has one 9.0-inch screen yet operates similarly. As of right now, Escalade customers don’t get the free Chromecast—yet, considering the lofty cost of the luxury SUV they’re purchasing, we think they can probably afford to buy one of the $35 gadgets on their own.
