Netflix launches Super HD video streaming, Android needs it next

Back in January Netflix launched a test program for their new "Super HD" video streaming for many regions, which is a new low-compression 1080p stream, and this week they've officially launched it for all subscribers. With less compression we get better quality streams. It's still 1080p, but it should look better. Now we're hoping for something similar for Android.

Chromecast back in stock on Google Play, ships tomorrow

When Google announced their Chromecast media-streaming dongle back at the end of July, it was met with tons of excitement. So much in fact, that they've been having a rather tough time keeping it in stock. It's been sold out and in and out of the Google Play Store for a few months, not to mention Amazon and Best Buy having the same troubles. Today though, Google finally has more.

Aereo streaming TV support coming to Android in September

Aereo, for those not familiar, is a service that will allow you to watch live television over the internet. The service will cost you a few bucks each month, but what you get is control over an antenna that will allow you to stream local channels that you would normally get at home. The perk is that you do not need any cable subscription, just an account with Aereo. The drawback here is that Aereo has yet to come available for Android.

Chromecast support promised in future Pocket Casts app update

There are still issues with third-party apps releasing updates that add support for Chromecast streaming, but that doesn't mean those developers cannot begin talking about future updates. We have seen chatter from a few developers up until this point and it looks like one more has come forward with a similar promise. The latest is Shifty Jelly who offer the Pocket Casts app.

Bitcasa to add support for Chromecast streaming

Bitcasa is touted as the service that offers "infinite storage" for your computer, phone or tablet and it looks like users will soon be able to use that storage to stream files to Chromecast. Users can get 10GB of free storage from Bitcasa or upgrade to that infinite storage level for $99 per year. While the pricing seems to be on the lower side, the low price of the Chromecast helped convince them of adding the support.
