"You asked for it, and we’re already delivering. Big Box Mode is here; use it in the living room, your game cabinet, or on your plain-old PC."

is there a way to play on your tv as in like casting or stream without a hdmi cable? or???  what do you mean use it in the living  room?

Unless your TV has a casting or streaming device built into it you will need something that is HDMI to connect to your TV. Steamlink is used by a few people around here. You could probably use a Chromecast but in the past there was a lot of input latency that would hamper the experience (no real world experience with this saw it on YT).

There isn't one built into BigBox to use through the Steam Link you have to setup BigBox as a nonsteam application and cast it from Steam but it works exceptionally good. I don't have any experience with the Chromecast so Google is your friend here search Windows Gaming on Chromecast.
