Channel 4's catch-up service All 4 finally arrives on Google's Chromecast streaming dongle today.

All 4 was previously known as 4oD (aka 4 On-Demand).

That means you'll be able to stream shows like 'Peep Show', 'First Dates', 'Made in Chelsea' and 'Gogglebox' through Google's streaming dongle.

Google's Chromecast already has a roster of catch-up and on-demand services like BBC iPlayer, Netflix, YouTube, Sky's Now TV and Vevo, but until now All 4 has been conspicuous by its absence.

A couple of months ago, Google unveiled the Chromecast 2, the latest version of its streaming dongle. It's round, while the original had a stick design, and comes in three colours: black, yellow and pink.

It now streams higher resolution video, though sadly that doesn't include 4K.

The Chromecast app has also been redesigned. Google says it will come to iOS soon.

You can play mobile games on your TV using the Chromecast 2, with your phone acting as the controller.

Chromecast 2 costs £30 from Google Play. That's cheaper than a lot of streaming devices, though not Sky's Now TV Box, which costs just £15.
