Streaming Dongles from Google and amazon

Todays news is that Google’s Chromecast is now available in the UK (and 10 other countries Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain and Sweden).

Whilst the price in the UK of £30 is a bit on the high side compared to its US equivalent of $35 it’s still well below the Roku competitor we mentioned a little while back which comes in at  £49.99.

In the UK the ubiquitous BBC iPlayer is available on the Chromecast.

It can be acquired from Google Play and many retailers including of course amazon

Talking of which there is general expectation that they will announce a device in the very near future (possibly April) but if history is anything to go by it will initially only be available in the US. We shall see and report back after its appearance.

We’ll leave you with Google’s little video to whet your casting appetite!
