Fans of mobile streaming will soon get another way to watch their favourite shows using their tablet or smartphone thanks to a new release from Vodafone.

The network has announced it will be the first UK oeprator to offer Google’s Chromecast device to subscribers, with existing 4G customers able to score a tasty discount.

From today, Vodafone customers with a 4G subscription will be able to pick up Chromecast for just £25, down from the RRP of £30, from any of the company’s 375 retail outlets across the country.

Originally released in the UK in April, Chromecast is a thumb-sized media streaming device which plugs into the HDMI port on your TV, allowing users to stream their favourite online shows, movies, music and more to their set using their smartphone, tablet or laptop.

It works with both Android and iOS devices, as well as Windows or Mac-powered laptops or PCs.

Vodafone Red 4G customers can already pick from a choice of Netflix, Spotify or Sky Sports Mobile TV subscriptions as part of their contracts, meaning fans can now embrace a media double-header to enjoy their shows.

"Giving our customers the best possible experience, wherever they are, is key. So, whether you’re at home or on the move, you’ll now be able to enjoy and share the best online content from your smartphone, tablet and PC on your TV."
