    It just keeps getting better.

    "Chromecast is delightfully cross-platform. It works with Android and iOS phones and tablets, Chromebooks, and the Chrome browser for Mac and Windows. The original device controls playbackso if you want to turn up the volume on your TV, simply turn up the volume on your phone. Any program that uses the Googlecast SDK can send contentGoogle specifically mentioned Netflix and YouTube, and says Pandora is on the way. The Chrome browser itself can also sling content via Chrome tab projection.

    That last point is huge. It means no matter what the web video or audio source (with the exception of Silverlight and Quicktime video) you should be able to play it on your TV if it plays in your desktop browser tab. That opens the door to web-based entertainment options right out of the gate without having to wait for the developers to take advantage of Googles SDK. Google confirmed to WIRED that you could run Hulu, Rdio, and HBO Go right out of the gate. You can project your Flickr photos, your web-based presentations, really just about anything that runs in the browser. (Like, say, porn. As one WIRED staffer put it, this is the pornslinger.) Thats pretty amazing."

    But will it work with a jailbroken movie app or puffin browser video on your phone or any and every app/browser at launch?

    Curious if this will work with Directv, specifically Sunday Ticket.
