Revision3 Chromecast Integration is Here!

December 10th, 2013 at 08:00 by Kaliel Roberts in Announcements, Technology, Website

It is our great pleasure to announce the integration of the Revision3 site and apps with Chromecast. If you have the Chromecast device,  you’ll be able to cast any of our HD videos to your TV using your phone, tablet or laptop. In fact, you’ll be able to turn your phone or tablet into a video input for your TV – basically, your device becomes a super-remote controlling your television. We’ve been casting to our TV using YouTube  and Netflix for a while and now you can enjoy it with Revision3 videos across all devices. You can start by watching a video on how to make yourself fly like Superman, in the movies.

What we find especially exciting about Chromecast integration is that it ends all this device-switching while treating the phone and the tablet as first-class video delivery platforms. You can start watching a video on your phone or tablet, and then cast it in-progress to your TV once you walk into your living room. Or, start by casting a video from your phone or tablet to your TV, then pause it and take it with you into the kitchen or off to work. Chromecast makes your TV just another screen, bypassing the complexity of integrating with the multiplying numbers of set top platforms.

Certainly our team has had a great time working on this Chromecast integration. Here’s a picture of our developers watching Revision3 on TV using Chromecast. Thanks guys!

Enjoy!


The R3 Experience Rolls Forward with the Revision3 Google Chrome App

January 20th, 2011 at 12:39 by Michele Husak in Uncategorized

Just as we’ve allowed you to watch great content sitting on your own couch with the Revision3 leanback applications for GoogleTV, Windows Media Center, Yahoo! Connected TV, Roku and Boxee, as well as in Planes, Trains and Automobiles (well, maybe not automobiles please) with our iPhone and Android apps, Revision3 is way-thrilled to announce our participation with the Google Chrome app store.

We have developed a new experience for enabling viewing through the Revision3 Chrome Application, through which you can now enjoy Revision3 programming on devices certified for Google’s Chrome browser and OS. The Revision3 Chrome interface makes finding content simple as it sorts shows by name, category, featured content and most recent episodes. Viewers are also able to manually search for their favorite episodes and view new content.

Want to try the sucker out? Search for Revision3 in the Google Chrome app store from within the chrome browser, or just point your chrome browser right here.

Share and enjoy!
