Best Option For Viewing One Cable Box in All Rooms?

My roommate and I share 1 cable box in the living room, but both have TVs in the bedroom that we would like to watch the cable on sometimes.

Is there any way to do this with the Chromecast?

I've heard that the Roku player has a Slingbox app, so I could get a Roku and Slingbox, but I'd like to spend as little money as possible.

Thanks

the roku /sling box is a nice thing but its still a little buggy - for stability i'd rather hook up a laptop to the TV or android device with HDMI Out.

You could run a splitter and two cables

The you would have to watch the same thing at the same time which would be the same with the slingbox anyway.

The slingbox is more handy overall and I have an older SOLO model that meets my needs - the refurbs on ebay are a great deal.

Mirrors. Kind of like how they defeated the devil in the movie legend.

Who's your cable company? See if they have DTA boxes. They are tiny cable boxes without guides or dvr's that only run about $3 a month.
