When Google launched Chromecast, a $35 HDMI-connected dongle that lets you stream online media, last week only a handful of services were available or officially announced.

This week, the number grows. According to GigaOM, streaming video services Vimeo and Redbox are on their way to the new platform.

Additionally, GigaOM reports that there are hints that Plex and HBO GO are also in the works.

These services will join Youtube, Netflix and Google Play as some of the supported services on the new device.

The Chromecast is available now for $35.
