Google has just announced an expanded casting queue for Chromecast with the addition of seven news apps for streaming your favorite shows, sports, games and movies. The new arrivals this holiday season include Comedy Central, Sesame Street Go, Nickelodeon, EPIX, YuppTV and Encore, while TuneIn provides access to international radio stations and millions of podcasts.

Comedy Central is home to shows like South Park and The Daily Show, while Sesame Street Go and Nickelodeon will keep your kids occupied with Elmo and Spongebob Squarepants. EPIX is an entertainment channel that airs everything from documentaries and comedy specials to boxing and mixed martial arts matches. YuppTV focuses on Indian content and Encore airs blockbuster movies.

Perhaps best of all, this means you can now watch The Colbert Report through Chromecast.
