Rdio brings 20 million songs to Google’s Chromecast

Rdio is the next top-tier name to work with Google’s Chromecast streaming stick. On Monday, the music service said its entire 20 million song catalog can be streamed to television through the Chromecast by using the Rdio app on iOS and Android. Don’t skip a step if you don’t use those mobile apps though: Rdio says its web client can also be used to stream music to a Chromecast. Using the apps, Rdio users can tune in to their favorite songs or create a personalized station for streaming, along with album art, to a Chromecast. In addition to Rdio, Crackle and VUDU also launched new apps that support Chromecast Monday.

‘Netflix for pirates’ brings streaming video to BitTorrent users

Netflix For Pirates Streaming Torrents

If Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu Plus are any indication, torrenting isn’t quite the destructive force many groups have made it out to be. BitTorrent is a popular alternative to legal streaming, buying and renting, but the abundance of poor quality torrents coupled with the unfriendly method of acquiring movies and TV shows through BitTorrent has kept a majority of viewers glued to their TVs, browsers and tablets.

PlayStation App update brings live broadcasts to mobile devices

PlayStation 4 App Update
The next major update for the PlayStation App has arrived. Sony released the latest update on Friday, which adds a new ‘Live from PlayStation’ tile to the app, giving users the ability to watch live streams of their favorite games on Ustream or Twitch. Unfortunately, the app does not support playback itself — when you select a stream, you’ll be rerouted to your browser for Twitch video or to the official app for Ustream. The new version of the app also supports the playback of video in notification from the PlayStation Store and the app will no longer automatically connect to a PlayStation 4 in standby mode. These are minor updates, but ever addition makes the PlayStation App that much more viable as a true second screen experience.
