Chromecast Users Get 1000 New Free Channels From FreeCast
FreeCast’s Rabbit TV mobile apps, now available for Chromecast, offer users more channels than even the largest pay-TV subscriptions.
Getting one thousand channels to choose from on your television once required the priciest cable or satellite TV subscription available, costing hundreds of dollars a month, and requiring your TV provider to install the necessary equipment. Now, the same can be achieved with your current smartphone or tablet, a free app, and Google’s $35 Chromecast. FreeCast’s Rabbit TV apps for Android and iOS now integrate seamlessly with Chromecast, and boast over 1000 channels, streamed effortlessly to your TV screen with the push of a single button.
Using Rabbit TV via Chromecast doesn’t just provide more channels than traditional cable packages, it offers the ideal user experience as well. Because your device features the channel guide while video is being cast to the screen, you never have to worry about losing the remote or navigation options covering the program you’re watching. You can also use other apps on your phone or tablet while streaming, without interrupting the video experience on your TV. Best of all, you can forget all about monthly fees, bulky set top boxes, service appointments, and other hassles typically associated with television service.
FreeCast CEO William Mobley described the company’s move as paving the way for a resurgence of ad-supported TV: “Freely available TV has always been the backbone of the industry. Pay-TV’s had a great run, but now it’s in need of an update. We think that starts with an update to the free ad-supported piece. Where you once bought an antenna to get a handful of free stations TV over the air, you can now buy a device like Chromecast and get thousands of channels from the web.”
