Chromecast Adds More Network Apps to Their Channel Lineup
The low cost Chromecast streaming stick made a big splash when it was first introduced. While it offers a nice selection of channels, it has nowhere near the number of channels or apps available than some of it's closest competitors like Roku, or Android TV.
Hopefully this is a sign of more great channels to come. Recently some big name Network TV channels announced they have joined the Chromecast platform.
CBS, Fox Now, FX Now, and HGTV WatchJoin Chromecast
These network channels are now available and can be viewed on Chromecast Streaming sticks.
While these channels are a nice addition they do not all offer the same amount of content you will find on their conventional cable channels. If you are looking for free access to entire series, you will be disappointed. Only CBS offers a $6 a month plan to gain access to full series of shows without a cable sub. Which is still nice since many of the premium network channels want you to pay for Cable or Satellite to be able to view them.
Also available on Roku and FireTV are Lifetime, Bloomberg and Smithsonian.
While you can't beat the price of a Chromecast streaming stick, the platform still has a ways to grow. If you can't get past not holding a remote control in your hand, take a look at the awesome newly released 2015 Roku 2 or 3 which are among the top rated media streamers available today.
