Chromecast adds new support for sports via Major League Soccer and WatchESPN Google has announced extended support for its Chromecast HDMI dongle, including notable sports programming like Major League Soccer and WatchESPN.
Ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, soccer fans (and other sports fans, of course) will be able to stream live sports content as long as you pay for ESPN as part of your cable/satellite/pay-TV package. This is great given the proximity to the world's most popular sporting event, and ahead of the NBA Finals this week.

Adds the search giant: "And if you can't wait to get your soccer fix, starting today you can cast professional soccer matchups with the MLS Matchday app and MLS LIVE premium services. So get your friends together to watch your local favorites while practicing the new game-day anthem for the U.S. Men's National Team from the comfort of your couch."

Additionally, Google has also added the ability to cast Google+ photos and videos from your desktop, Android or iOS Google+ apps. Anime fans are in luck as well, with Crunchyroll being given the cast treatment.
