Chromecast: Google's media stick finally comes to Australia

Google's Chromecast is here, with Foxtel and Quickflix the first local video services to jump onboard. But what else does it bring to our lounge rooms?

After months of speculation, Google's Chromecast streaming stick is officially available to Australians, on sale in the Google Play store or over the counter in national retailers JB HiFi and Dick Smith. For $49, there's not much in the box -- it's doesn't come with a remote control, because it's not actually a media player. It's simply an HDMI-capable wireless bridge to your television, letting you stream internet video from gadgets around your home such as smartphones, tablets, notebooks and desktops.
