If you’re in the UK and plan to finally get your hands on a Chromecast, the good news is that the existing BBC iPlayer Android app is already compatible with the device, reports iMore.

It may take a minute or so, or even a relaunch of the app to kick it into gear. When it’s ready to go you’ll see the standard Chromecast logo along top of the app. To cast your content you need to first connect the app by tapping on the Chromecast logo and selecting which you want to pair to. After that just go ahead and choose what you want to watch and let it do the rest … 


Chromecast is available in the UK from Amazon, Google Play, Currys, and PC World for £30. The iPlayer app is a free download from Google play. It allows you to watch live TV (licence required), watch programmes from the past week and download shows to many popular devices.
