Best answer: No, you will not be able to stream Criterion Channel using Chromecast.

Not happening

Unfortunately, it looks like Criterion Channel will not be supporting Chromecast when it launches on April 8. There's no statement posted on its website, so we can safely say they will not have it on the service. However, things are always bound to change, and Criterion will surely add more devices in the coming months or years (as every streaming service has done).

Although they may not support Chromecast, you can always check it out on your Android TV or Android device. Try it out on your Chromebook or maybe your Pixel 3 XL, if you're into those weird larger phones.

What devices are supported?

The devices that Criterion Channel supports are actually quite impressive. Along with iOS and Android devices, it also supports streaming on Roku, Amazon Fire, and Apple TV as well as any desktop device.

Although Chromecast didn't make the cut, you can still watch it on your Roku device. Roku is a great alternative that has a lot of options for streaming, including Criterion Channel. It's not necessarily Apple or Android, so it's a perfect middle ground.
