Chromecast is about to go global

February 7th, 2014 at 10:00 PM

It’s no secret that Google wants to bring its very popular Chromecast dongle to international markets this year, and it appears that buyers in the U.K. may be the first to officially purchase the device. The Chromecast will apparently launch in the country “within weeks,” according to The Next Web. Local electronics retailer Currys expects to start selling the dongle on March 1st, although Google apparently told the publication the date is “provisional” for now.

Pricing details for the international Chromecast, which sells in the U.S. for just $35, have yet to be unveiled. The device is expected to be similarly affordable in other regions as well. It’s not known yet whether the Chromecast will also be launched in other European countries staring with March, although Google’s device has been unofficially available in international markets ever since it was unveiled last year.

Only recently, Google has officially opened doors to developers by releasing the highly anticipated Google Cast SDK for the device, which will allow app creators to add Chromecast support to their apps. So far, there’s only a limited number of Chromecast-ready applications, including Netflix, YouTube, Hulu Plus, HBO Go, and a few others that can offer access to plenty of digital content.
