Two New Chromecast-able Apps, NPR One and Watch ABC

chromecast

According to the official Google Chrome Twitter handle, two more services have added in Chromecast functionality as of late, those being NPR One and Watch ABC.

With the updated apps, users can cast the service’s content straight to the big screen in their living room, such as NPR One’s radio channels, as well as select shows from the Watch ABC app. 

Since its launch, the Chromecast has become quite the little content curator. If you still have yet to grab one, you better get on that.

For a Google-made list of compatible apps for Chromecast, check here.

    I would like to see the cox contour app bring chromecast.

  • Kelly OBrien

    Works fine on the Note 2. So what good is this if I am at home watching ABC on tv ? Why do we need this ?

    • monkeybutts

      Watch ABC has reruns for anything you might have missed. It’s like Hulu but ABC programs only.

  • Edwin M

    A lot of people come up not compatible. You can make you’re own APK using this website. http://apps.evozi.com/apk-downloader/
    This has worked for me in the past. Not compatible with my Droid Mini either.

  • Taylor Abrahamson

    You know.. The official Google Dev Device…

  • Firelight

    Anyone have an APK?

    • Edwin M

      You can make you’re own with that site.

      • Kyle Miller

        Thanks! This clearly works on my Nexus 5 with AT&T U Verse account. Not sure why I couldn’t download it directly from the store.

  • Firelight

    ABC app say incompatible with: Moto X, Nexus 7, Galaxy Nexus, Droid X, Acer 510.

    What IS it compatible with?

    • zepfloyd

      My Note 3 and GS4 come up fine. Nexus 5 and 7 no.

      • e_droid

        Works on my (2012) N7

    • Kevin

      Nexus 10

    • T4rd

      Works on my One M8, GS5, Note 3, G3, Oneplus One, and iPhone 5S. Not working on my Nexus 5, 7, 10, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z2 Compact, or Moto X. *pushes glasses up* =p

      • Menger40

        You have a few phones.

      • CasperTFG

        How’s that Oneplus One treating you?

    • PoisonApple31

      Works on my LG G3

    • Terrance Steiner

      It would work on my Nexus 7 but not my Moto Razr HD. It doesn’t mater because I need a cable subscription to use this app and I do not have one. All the shows on this app will likely be on Hulu anyway.

  • Mike Reardon

    Watch ABC is not compatible with Moto X either

  • mbaldwin85

    Still waiting on the WWE app so I can watch the WWE Network on my Chromecast for the low price of $9.99.

  • Taylor Abrahamson

    Not compatable with Nexus 5!? WTF!?

  • http://zachpepsin.com Zach P

    I got mine in yesterday and was really disappointed to find out that it doesn’t work on the wifi network at my college apartment. Anybody know a work around before I send it back?

    • Taylor Abrahamson

      You really… reaalllyyy wouldn’t want it directly linked to your college wifi. LOL

      I would highly suggest you pickup a router and re-extend their network to your own private one and connect it to that.

      • http://zachpepsin.com Zach P

        haha yes I know. My roomate messes with other people in our complex and AirPlays them some similar videos in the middle of the night lol. Think the extended router is the only fix? I’m sure whoever is manning the IT here at the apartment wouldn’t appreciate that either.

        • Taylor Abrahamson

          Do you not have an RJ45 Ethernet cable coming into the apartment somewhere??

          • http://zachpepsin.com Zach P

            Yes I do, there’s an extender in each apartment.

          • Taylor Abrahamson

            Oh, well then buy your own router and plug it into the extender they provide. Use your chromecast and profit. Connect all your wifi stuff to your new router, not their extender. That way it’s all firewalled in your own subnet

        • Gfunk81

          Just hook a wireless router to the Ethernet port in your college apartment

          • Sean

            And then make the SSID unlisted so no one knows it’s even there.

      • Kevin

        I wouldn’t mind…

    • niuguy

      Yeah, that would be a terrible idea. …unless you want random midget porn streamed to your tv.

  • Chris Ghubril

    Not compatible with Nexus 5?

    • evltwn

      Same with the Nexus 7.

    • That Guy

      Not with T-Mo Moto X, either.

    • Terrance Steiner

      Watch ABC is not compatible with cord cutters. You need a cable account to use it.

      • Nick

        That’s not the issue, it wont even install on those phones from the play store. That’s well before you have to punch in your TV provider login…

        • Terrance Steiner

          I get that. The ABC app is not compatible with my Moto RAZR HD (but it is with my Nexus 7). All i was saying is that even if it were compatible I could not use it because I do not have cable.

      • Firelight

        I have cable – with Suddenlink. The damned dirty bastiches won’t even participate with ABC/ESPN so I might as well not have cable as far as this app goes.

        • BobButtons

          Think that’s bad? ABC doesn’t even play nice with Time Warner Cable…..

    • krudl3rx

      Neither is the Lego Fusion app… but the Nexus 4 is at least so I guess I only need to wait a year.
