CBS All Access was already available for folks who fancy Roku devices, and now the television streaming app plays nice with Chromecast. The network updated both the Android and iOS versions to beam shows like Big Bang Theory, The Good Wife and NCIS to your TV via Google's $35 dongle. If you'll recall, the CBS subscription service offers on-demand streaming for $6 a month, and users in select locales (like New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Philadelphia -- to name a few) can access live TV, too. And that list of local affiliates is expanding on the regular. Prefer to log in from your computer? Using Chrome and Google Cast browser extension, you can send the show you're watching to Chromecast from there as well. As far as the mobile software goes, you'll want to be sure to grab the latest versions from iTunes and Google Play in order to make it work with the living room accessory.

Update: CBS isn't the only one adding Chromecast support to its streaming apps today. Fox updated the FOX Now and FXNow software for both iOS and Android to deliver the same functionality there. That tacks on Google's compact streamer to a list of supported devices that includes Roku, Xbox, Apple TV and more. Not to be left out, HGTV added casting support, too.
