    As Chromecast doesn't run Flash video.

    It will run Flash video through the Chrome app:

    From the article:

    "On the traditional PC side, it supports Chrome on recent versions of Windows and Mac OS X: users can stream the contents of tabs directly from the browser, including HTML5 and Flash content, though Silverlight and Quicktime video aren't supported. Somewhat ironically, the only currently supported Chromebook is the high-end Pixel, though wider support is coming. Google says this particular feature is in beta, but will be finalized with the release of Chrome 30."

    If Chromecast runs Flash then so will the Google TV version.

    I don't think it will play back Flash as well as a Playbook though.
