CTV Becomes First Canadian Broadcaster to Support Google Chromecast

Last updated:

CTV has announced its CTV GO TV Everywhere service now works with Google Chromecast. The newly updated CTV GO provides an improved user experience and is the first TVE product from a Canadian broadcaster to support Chromecast functionality.

Increasing the value of subscriptions to participating TV service providers, CTV has enabled the newly updated CTV GO to take the next step in providing viewers the flexibility to start, stop, and continue their favourite CTV programs seamlessly, in and out of the home.

With the Chromecast device, Canadians have another option to enjoy their favourite CTV GO offerings on a big screen. Current users can stream from their web-connected computers or the CTV GO app for their iOS and Android mobile devices.

“As viewing habits continue to evolve, Bell Media is committed to continuing our momentum of providing the latest TV technology to our viewers,” said Domenic Vivolo, Executive Vice-President, Content Sales, and Distribution Marketing, Bell Media.

“As the first Canadian broadcaster to support Google Chromecast we are offering viewers an unparalleled TVE experience – giving them great programming wherever and whenever they want to see it.”

 

“We’re excited to have CTV as the first Canadian broadcaster available on Chromecast,” said Suveer Kothari, Director of Chromecast Partnerships, Google.

“With the CTV GO app and Chromecast, Canadians will now be able to use the devices they already own, like phones, tablets, and laptops to find and cast their favourite CTV programs to their TV screen with a simple tap.”

The new CTV GO app features a redesigned, current, and cleaner look, and full support for Google Chromecast. With core improvements that have made the app faster, the user experience is improved with easily accessible content including full-length episodes and extras.

CTV GO is a free app allowing Canadians to access CTV’s #1 television lineup on-demand for seven days following a television broadcast. Additional content is available exclusively to Canadians who subscribe to participating TV service providers, allowing them extended catch-up viewing windows, as well as live streams of CTV and CTV Two broadcasts. Currently, participating service providers include Bell Fibe, Bell TV, Bell Aliant FibreOP TV, Northerntel FibreOP, Shaw Cable, Shaw Direct, Telus Optik TV, Northwestel, Eastlink, and Access Communications, with additional CTV GO partners to be announced soon.
