With Cast SDK launch and impending flood of Chromecast supported apps, this Google media streamer is finally ready for launch outside USA. According to a report in The Next Web, UK retailer Currys expects to begin Chromecast sales from March 1.
Google told TNW that it is planning to the release the Chromecast but stated that it is a provisional date and might be changed.
