It has been a long time since Google’s $35 HDMI dongle was released and its performance has exceeded even Google’s expectations. Chromecast hooks up to a television through the HDMI port and then allows users to “cast” content to the big screen. For its part Google has worked hard to bring support for many content sources to the dongle and today it announced that several more have been added to the list, which include Comedy Central and Nickelodeon.


A total of seven new apps have been added to Chromecast. This includes Comedy Central, Sesame Street Go and Nickelodeon. EPIX, YuppTV and ENCORE Play are also available now on the dongle. With the updated lineup Chromecast users have a full range of shows, sports, movies and games at their disposal during the holiday season.

Some of the very popular services are already available on Chromecast, including but not limited to Netflix, YouTube, HBO Go, Showtime Anywhere, Pandora,, Hulu Plus and many, many more.

The Chromecast continues to hold its own despite the fact that such streaming dongles have also been released by the likes of Roku and Amazon, apart from a plethora of Chinese manufacturers. One thing that certainly plays in its favor is the availability of more content sources.
