MLB.TV has added Chromecast support so paying customers of its Premium service can now stream live out-of-market major league baseball games using Google's $35 device.

Users can download the At Bat app from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.

Google opened up developer support for Chromecast in February, paving the way for a plethora of apps to support it. We're still in the early days on this, and the inexpensive device is only going to become more and more attractive to users as more options become available.

A couple weeks ago, Crackle, Rdio, and Vudu added support, and earlier this week, StumbleUpon launched support for its 5by video discovery app on iOS (Android was already available).

Other supported apps include: Netflix, HBO Go, Hulu Plus, Pandora, YouTube, Google Play Movies & TV, Google Play Music, Songza, Red Bull TV, Vevo, Plex, PostTV, Viki, and RealPlayer Cloud.

Google held its Q1 earnings call yesterday. It didn't reveal how many Chromecasts have been sold, but said the device has been a "real hit".
