Chromecast, the web-connected HDMI dongle that links with a smartphone to stream video and audio on a television, has expanded into new territories. Google has announced that Chromecast is now available in 11 new countries with some region-specific content to go along with it. Having launched in the United States in July 2013, this marks the first time that the streaming accessory is available outside of the US.
Chromecast is now available in:
- United Kingdom
Prices vary slightly by market and currency, but Amazon, Google Play, Currys, Elkjøp, FNAC, Saturn, Media Markt, and other retailers have already begun selling it. Google has also confirmed that some local content will accompany the launch of Chromecast. BBC iPlayer will update to support Chromecast in the UK, as will France TV Pluzz and SFR TV in France, Watchever and Maxdome in Germany. This is on top of the established Google Apps that work with Chromecast, like Play Music and Movies, and the dozens of independent apps that have recently added support. A gallery of a few popular Android apps that support Chrome is available here.source: Google
