Google is continuing with its attempts to add more content partners for Chromecast streaming. As a part of that same drive, the company has now included Comedy Central, Sesame Street Go, Nickelodeon, TuneIn, EPIX, YuppTV and Encore to its list of channels.
The newly added content partners provides a good mix of comedy, kids and radio/podcast content. It also added movie and content channels, including an app for U.S. blockbusters. YuppTV provides access to more than 170 live Indian TV channels while TuneIn provides live-streaming of more than 100,000 radio stations and more than 4 million podcasts.
Chromecast’s streaming options have been rapidly increasing. Earlier in November, Showtime signed up, and now we are seeing apps from two major Viacom properties and some other popular media outlets. It is interesting to see how media companies are ready to jump on the Chromecast bandwagon.
Announcing the same on its blog, Google says,
Chromecast is adding seven more great apps to your casting queue. Get bigger laughs with The Daily Show on Comedy Central, learn with Elmo on Sesame Street Go, or cast Nickelodeon and let Spongebob keep your family entertained. And, no matter how far you travel this winter, stay connected with TuneIn for international radio stations and millions of podcasts. With EPIX, YuppTV and ENCORE Play also casting, you have a full lineup of shows, sports, games and movies to last throughout the holiday season.
