Google UK has uploaded a new Chromecast advert to last-generation video war winner YouTube, showing all the exciting ways you can confuse the elderly by making what's on your phone magically appear on your TV without first spending 45 minutes looking for the right kind of wire. And BT Sport is the star of it.

As we all know, a thing only becomes successful when there's football on it for the masses to enjoy, so the arrival of BT Sport on Chromecast good news for Google's app-based streaming dream. BT subscribers able to access the sport channels should now be able to "cast" the footie, rugby, lacrosse or whatever to their dongle-enabled TVs right now. [YouTube via Google UK]
