CraveTVTM is the first Canadian streaming service to be compatible with Google Chromecast, it was announced today. The launch of CraveTV on Chromecast is the latest in a series of platform releases for CraveTV. Canadians can now cast CraveTV’s entire library of premium television programming onto their TVs from iOS and Android apps. Chromecast, a thumb-sized device, is plugged into HDMI ports on TVs, allowing viewers to seamlessly pause, play, rewind, and fast-forward their favourite CraveTV series from their mobile device, as well from www.CraveTV.ca in the Chrome browser.
As announced earlier this year, CTV GO became the first TVE product from a Canadian broadcaster to work with Google Chromecast. CraveTV is the next service with Chromecast functionality, with more Bell Media digital brands to become compatible with Chromecast in the future.
“Our goal is to give CraveTV subscribers the ability to view its great programming whenever and wherever they choose,” said Domenic Vivolo, Executive Vice-President, Content Sales, and Distribution Marketing, Bell Media. “By delivering CraveTV through Chromecast onto their televisions, CraveTV becomes even more valuable to its subscribers.”
