Google Launches Chromecast In Europe and Canada

Congratulations, Europe and Canada—you finally get to see what all the fuss over Google’s cheap TV streaming stick is about.

The company is releasing the device, which has been available in the U.S. for $35 since last summer, in 11 countries: Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the UK.

A Google representative told me that the international release was delayed partly due to manufacturing and distribution issues. That may reflect lessons Google learned from the U.S. release, during which the Chromecast rapidly sold out shortly after launch.
