Have you been in awe over the Chromecast but unable to get your hands on one unless you’re buying through a third party and paying insane prices? You may be in luck as of March 25th, as Google is expected to announce that its popular media dongle will be available in more countries. Here’s to hoping that Canada is on that list!

Advertisements are already popping up across in various European countries ahead of the announcement, listing that companies have already started to get ready for the anticipated release of Google’s media extender. Right now, no official list of countries has been supplied or leaked, but it is good news for an international release of the device if we’re receiving reports from across the pond.

Chromecast is a digital media streaming adapter that has been developed and manufactured by Google. The device is a dongle which isn’t much larger than a USB thumb drive and it plays audio/video content on a high-definition television by streaming it via Wi-Fi from the Internet or local network. Right now, it is only available officially in the United States.
