Now that Channel 4 has taken control of the BBC’s Formula One broadcast feeds in the UK, there may be a few people wondering how to watch the live streams via the Internet – after-all, as wonderful as All 4 is, they don’t actually make it as easy to watch live streams as the BBC did.
It’s taken an incredibly long time, but Google seems to have finally seen fit to release the latest Chromecast devices to their Australian customers, including for the first time, the Chromecast Audio.
Chromecast support finally reached Channel 4’s All 4 late last month on Android, but it wasn’t until today that iOS users could also enjoy casting to Google’s HDMI dongle. So if you haven’t updated your All 4 app, now is the time to do it.
Sling TV, the contract-free Internet-delivered live pay-TV service from the US, has just added support for the budget Chromecast stick, allowing an easy and cost-effective way to watch Sling TV’s live or catch-up content on the big-screen TV.
It’s not often that we post news on something that hasn’t happened yet, but when it comes to new platforms for All 4, we think it’s important enough to get the word out. So wait for it… All 4 will finally support Chromecast…
If you’re looking for a streaming device on a budget, one of the best out there is the Chromecast from Google. This fantastic, low-cost dongle will stream Netflix, BBC iPlayer, Hulu, Zattoo and loads more for less than $35 to a big-screen TV near you. But is it as easy to use as a normal set-top-box?
