We’ve already learned today that Chromecast owners can now use their Synology NAS DiskStation to stream media remotely to Google’s Chromecast HDMI dongle even whilst away from their home.
Now Slingbox has announced that support will soon be released for Google’s Chromecast dongle, adding another useful application to the ever growing list of apps available for Googles Chromecast device.
Currently a Slingbox has been designed to stream a video signal to a mobile device or web browser, most often directly from a cable box, allowing subscribers to view live or recorded content whilst away from their main TV. Slingbox employee Matt explains :
“We’ve definitely heard all of the requests for Chromecast support, and user demand is an important criterion in our product decisions. I checked in with engineering, and although I can not give you a timeline yet, I’m happy to report Chromecast support is in development. Keep an eye on our “What’s New?” page for official announcements.”
