Today we are excited to announce MLS LIVE is now Google Cast enabled! Use your Android phone, Android tablet, iPhone, and iPad to cast live, full replay, and condensed games to your Chromecast. Just download the latest version of MLS Matchday from Google Play and the App Store, setup a Google Chromecast, and login with your MLS LIVE subscription.
Our setup is using a Custom Receiver and the Media Player Library to provide the streams directly to your HD television. We worked with our mobile development partner, Double Encore, so the custom receiver displays the team logos when you start watching a game. If you are looking to get started on your own receiver we can suggest starting with the UX Design Checklist and the open-source samples on Github.
This is just the first Chromecast update. We are working to add Google Cast support to the web version of MLS LIVE via Chrome. We are also still developing a custom receiver to support our video on-demand content like MLS Insider and AT&T Goal of the Week, which is hosted by Ooyala. You can expect a few other new features to roll out in the coming months.
