Not a YouTube partner? That’s okay — Google’s streaming video outfit is letting you access some of its premium features anyway. In a recent blog post, the company announced that it will be lowering the subscriber threshold for live streaming to 100, down from 1,000 in May. The feature should be available to all channels in good standing sometime in the next few weeks, provided users hop into their Account Features page and click on the “enable” button. The blog also reminds users that they can maximize their channel’s exposure by uploading custom video thumbnails, compiling videos into playlists and by linking out to associated websites via YouTube annotations. More features for the little guy? We can get behind that.

Chromecast exploit in action

We hope you weren’t planning to tinker with your Chromecast this weekend. GTVHacker has confirmed that a recent firmware update to Google’s streaming media stick plugs the bootloader exploit that many are using to get root access. Some XDA-Developers members have tried maintaining root by flashing recovery images and disabling signing keys, but those aren’t reliable solutions — we’ve seen a few reports of bricked Chromecasts. If you’re cautious, it may be best to wait until more adventurous owners find a vulnerability in Google’s newer code.

TV shows come to Google Play UK

The British have had access to Google Play Movies for months, but they’ve been denied TV shows — an unusual omission given the country’s rich broadcasting history. All is now right with the world, however, as Google now offers TV episodes through the UK’s Google Play Store. The early catalog focuses on shows from big local networks, such as the BBC and Channel 5, as well as imports from the colonials (read: Americans). Brits keen on streaming Sherlock just have to visit Google Play to start watching.

DNP MGO for Vizio Smart TV

If you were one of those who took a chance on M-Go when it entered the internet streaming arena in January, listen up: you have a new way to enjoy your flicks now that it’s rolling out an app for Vizio Smart TVs. This is the latest addition to the growing roster of compatible devices that you can use to rent / buy movies and TV shows on the subscription-free, pay-as-you-go service. Besides the new app, looks like M-Go’s also making an effort to stay true to its “people-friendliest” promise by revamping its website for easier navigation. These developments might make M-Go harder to dismiss for potential users despite many similar services out there, and who knows — if it continues to expand its offerings, more people could give it a second look in the future.
