    The official release date is either 19th March or 25th March apparently.

    If the European price of 35 is accurate, it will probably cost 29.99 in the UK.

    Why not use a Roku? Works great with Plex.

    Chromecast To Launch in UK This Wednesday As Currys/PC World Exclusive OMG Chrome!

    We've also learnt that Google has struck a deal with UK retailer DSGi (also known as DSG Retail, and Dixons Retail) to sell the media streaming device exclusively through its Currys/PC World brand in the UK, both online and in-store.

    I've had one for ages as well and mostly use it on my TV in the garage to have Netflix or YouTube videos on the big screen while I'm tinkering with my bike or doing some other project. I have also used it a lot to cast a Chrome tab from my main PC but the lack of being able to do that with my Nexus has been annoying. Plex will be a welcome addition.

    Just noticed it in the Play Store myself.

    https://play.google.com/store/device...?id=chromecast

    I already have two Chromecasts, although if I got a third I could turn it into a networked audio player for streaming music.

    How I turned my Chromecast into a $45 networked audio adapter GigaOm

    The adapter mentioned in the article above is 8.84 on Amazon's website.

    Take your pick:

    Amazon - Free Delivery too

    PC World/Currys

    Play Store

    I've just reserved myself another one at PC World.

    Hopefully we'll see BBC iPlayer go live with support later too.

    Edited to add...

    BBC iPlayer now officially supports Chromecast. Taken from their Play Store description:
    We've added support for Chromecast! Connecting a Chromecast HDMI dongle to your television will allow you to send, or 'cast', a programme from BBC iPlayer on your mobile to your TV.

    Thanks for the link Arthur.

    It's actually quite a simple idea when you think about it. I may give that a go.
