Hi all, I got my Chromecast when it was released but was bummed by the lack of up-to-date news that I could "set and forget" on my TV. I was looking for an alternative to CNN Headline News that would play all the top news of the day. The closest thing I found was the "News Autogenerated Channel" from YouTube, but the content was not that good and sometimes it didn't have enough videos.

So I got together with a friend and just released a Headline News service for Chromecast:
We use Twitter to get the latest news and create a personalized playlist on your Youtube account based on your interests (e.g. World News, Tech News, Gaming News, etc). I now use Chromecast to run through the playlist every day while I'm cooking or before I go to work. Let us know what you think.

We called the service "HT Headline News" -- HT stands for "Hashtag"

Hope this helps. Let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions!
