KPN’s new smart TV app will soon work on the new Chromecast with Google TV, the provider has announced on its forum. That is of course “as soon as it is officially released in the Netherlands”. Does KPN know more about the availability of the Chromecast? It looks like that.
KPN and new Chromecast
At its Fall 2020 launch event, Google introduced the new Chromecast with Google TV. Since then, the streaming stick has doubled as a smart TV platform for all your apps, and that concept appealed to users. Only the Chromecast did not immediately come to the Netherlands, and that is why you had to buy it through another route.
It seems that this cumbersome process is coming to an end, because a forum post from KPN confirms that the Chromecast will soon work with the KPN TV app. “The Android TV app works on all devices with Android TV operating system. These are for example some TVs from Sony and Philips, media players such as the Nvidia Shield or the Xiaomi box, and soon also the latest Chromecast Sabrina (as soon as it is officially released). in the Netherlands)”.
KPN thus seems to insinuate that a launch of the device is imminent, because why else would the provider name that specific streaming device that is currently not available in our country? ‘Sabrina’ was the code name that Google used internally to refer to the Chromecast. We have asked KPN for more clarity. Google had no further information for us about an imminent launch of the new Chromecast, so we are patiently waiting for official coverage.
In KPN’s forum post, the telecom provider shared more that its smart TV apps will soon work with a new series of televisions.
