News – NBC Android App now supports Chromecast
According to the Android Police the NBC Android App now supports Chromecast. On the NBC website they have many shows available so you’d think through that and then Casting them to your TV you could access them, but I have to imagine the Android app is easier or possibly has newer or more content than the website. A live stream of NBC is available but only if you log in with a acceptable user name and password from a recognized cable or satellite credentials. Some people are able to get this to work on the Nexus player but it seems that complaints are high with issues such as broken videos, crashing, and unintuitive closed captioning. It currently has a 3.5 out of 5 stars but I noticed that many people that have given it high ratings had previously given it low ratings and after updates had gone back and increased the ratings.
