Will my old LCD TV work with Chromecast?

I have an older Sony Bravia LCD TV, it's about 10 years old, maybe older. It's not a smart TV. Will it work with a Google Chromecast? And will I need to plug the chromecast device into a power source, or can it draw power from the HDMI port? My TV's model number is: Sony Bravia KDL-52XBR5. Thanks!

    One of the use cases of a streaming device like a Chromecast is so that you can use it on a non-smart TV. It won't be able to get power from the HDMI port of the TV, but the Chromecast should come with a Micro USB cable and power brick that you plug into the wall or power strip.
