Even if they did add Chromecast,.. it would do you no good since you still need to have a cable plan that includes BTN in your channel listing. I've used BTN2Go along with a micro-HDMI cable and it's great for when I'm not at home. However, if you're at home, the BTN2Go app is basically useless, since it requires you to have the channel already avaiable for your TV,.. might as well watch it on the big screen directly from your cable box.

Not too far here in Frederick, MD. I've had Comcast 'Digital Starter' + the 'Sports Entertainment' package and have had BTN in HD the last two or three years. At the time I signed up for the 'Sports Entertainment' package, it was the only way to get BTN (SD OR HD), and pretty much the only reason I signed up for it. All has been well in the past few years. However, I just noticed that I'm no longer getting either channel. I then tried to 'authorize' the video feed on the BTN2Go app, and it said the channel was no longer part of my account. I checked the xfinity plans channel lineup for my zip code (21702) and sure enough, they moved BTN out of the 'Sports Entertainment' package, and made it part of the 'Comcast Digital Premier'. So now, instead of paying a $10 extra for the 'Sports Entertainment' package (which is now pretty much useless for me), I'll be forced to upgrade from the 'starter' to the 'premier' (not even the mid-tier 'preferred'). We barely watch TV other than during a few sporting season periods (and almost exclusively college football), so this definitely does not add up for us as far as a wise decision to make. I wouldn't imagine University of Maryland joining the Big Ten might have had anything to do with this decision... nah... that would just be too obvious of an example of why monopolies are bad for the customers. Sadly we don't have a choice and must keep paying these crooks for services that are priced at orders of magnitude more than basic living necessities.
