They do. I even have to use UnoTelly's VPN to post on Geekzone here.

The TVNZ app on my Android phone doesn't seem to have a cast option, so I'm guessing it's the same on iOS.

So are most of the people using Chromecast in NZ casting a Chrome tab to see videos?

4possm: Anybody know if you can use US Hulu Plus or Netflix through these or are they set for NZ only apps?


Yes you can I have been using Hulu and Netflix with CC for quite a while. You need to block google DNS servers.

Another thing I found you should change your Wifi access point settings Beacon Interval to 50ms, to avoid the CC from not being detected or dropping.

Santa called early today and I got my chromecast.

Can confirm casting from the chrome browser on my win 7 PC, that BBC iplayer, 4od, channel 5 and SBS seemed to stream to the Chromecast OK. SBS did seem to have an audio sync issue. Will poke around a bit more later.

So far so good....

After watching my son practice yesterday I think I have found a use for my Chromecast, he can use it as a target for his Archery practice.

Just FYI
I was wondering if the lovely screen saver slideshow ever stops if the chromecast is left plugged in. 
I found a few forums that suggest that the standard screensaver images can use up to 10MB data per hour - ie 240MB per day?
(1GB every 4 days - aprox 7GB per month if my maths are any good)
Seems excessive - but would be enough for me to not leave it running continuously - I have it running off the power pack as the TV doesnt have a USB port.

Will have to fiddle with the screen saver/photo settings and see what I can find.

Thanks for all the replies. I will pick one up and have a play. It should certainly make things easier for some things.

Google is giving away free stuff to new and existing Chromecast users. Click below link from Chrome with the Cast extension installed that is in the same network as your Chromecast. There is different stuff depending on region. This below is confirmed working for NZ.
