Google announced on Tuesday it’s expanding the distribution of its digital media player Chromecast, launching the device in 10 European countries plus Canada.

The other new markets are Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the U.K. The Chromecast receiver, which allows viewers to stream content from the web onto their TV sets, costs about CDN$39 or £30.

Viewers in the U.K. and France will be able to stream local content from the BBC iPlayer, France TV Pluzz, SFR TV and Canalplay. Apps from German VOD platforms Watchever and Maxdome will also be launching.

“In addition to your favorite apps like YouTube, Google Play Movies, Google Play Music and Netflix (where available), we’re working with local content providers to bring even more of the movies and TV shows you love to Chromecast,” writes Mario Queiroz, VP of product management, Chromecast, in a blog post.

Chromecast, which launched in the U.S. last July, can be bought on Amazon, Google Play, Currys PC World, Elkjøp, FNAC, Saturn and Media Markt.
