Still No Chromecast For Australia

Recent rumours have suggested that Google’s Chromecast streaming dongle might soon officially go on sale in Australia. Today, Google announced that Chromecast would appear in 11 more countries, but Australia isn’t one of them.

Instead, Chromecast is being released in 10 European countries and Canada. It isn’t hard to import a Chromecast (try eBay if you’re on the hunt), but there won’t be any local apps integrated. In the UK, there’s a built-in app for the BBC iPlayer. I’d love to see an ABC iView app on the Chromecast if it does come to Australia. In the meantime, if you do acquire one, there are plenty of other Android apps that will work with it.
