When we reviewed Chromecast shortly after launch, we loved how easy it was to send video from Netflix, YouTube, and whatever was playing in our Google Chrome browser over to the TV via Google’s Chromecast HDMI dongle.
Tablo, a DVR that records over-the-air TV that you can watch on your tablet or smartphone, told us at CES that they planned to add support for sending that video to the Chromecast as soon as Google released this SDK, for example, and we expect many other apps to follow suit. It looks like the $35 dongle is about to get a lot more valuable, to developers and consumers alike.
