The Washington Post Debuts Chromecast Integration

PostTV ChromecastThe Washington Post debuted their Chromecast integration today, becoming the first news organization to allow users to access their content through the growing second screen device.

“This adds a whole new dimension to watching Washington Post video, since it allows users to sit back and watch on their TV at home,” Andrew Pergam, senior editor of Video at The Washington Post tells Lost Remote.

Pergam is excited at Chromecast’s ability to turn a users traditional digital device into a quasi-remote.

“You’re able to watch our video and control it just as easily as you would anything else—and you’re able to turn your computer or tablet into, essentially, a remote control,” Pergam said. “We think that’s a really cool part of watching video in the future, and we’re pleased we can be the first news site to do it.”

Washingtonpost.com, PostTV.com, The Washington Post iPad app, PostTV app on Android tablets and phones are now Chromecast accessible.

The Post announced the Chromecast move over the summer as part of its PostTV video push.
