Chromecast is adding seven more apps to its casting queue, with EPIX, Encore Play, Comedy Central, Sesame Street Go, Nickelodeon, TuneIn and YuppTV all joining the streaming dongle's content bouquet.

"Get bigger laughs with The Daily Show on Comedy Central, learn with Elmo on Sesame Street Go, or cast Nickelodeon and let Spongebob keep your family entertained," said Faisal Feroz, partner engineering manager for the Chromecast, in a blog. "And, no matter how far you travel this winter, stay connected with TuneIn for international radio stations and millions of podcasts. With EPIX, YuppTV and ENCORE Play also casting, you have a full line-up of shows, sports, games and movies to last throughout the holiday season."

The apps join the rest of the Google Chromecast line-up, which includes Showtime Anytime, Netflix, Hulu Plus, WatchESPN, Starz Play, Watch ABC, Pandora, HBO GO, WATCH Disney, YouTube, PBS Kids, WATCH Disney XD, WATCH Disney Junior, Crackle and Vevo, among others.
