Chomecast has been a bit of a bumpy ride since Google initially launched it a couple of months ago. Between a limited selection of officially-equipped apps and Google seemingly intentionally blocking third-party development, it’s been a $35 purchase that hasn’t been quite as sweet for some as it’s been for others. Thankfully, things are getting a tad bit sweeter today.
Google and Hulu have announced that Chromecast support has been added to the Hulu Plus for Android app. It’s simple, really — one tap of the “cast” button will allow you to beam whatever you’re watching on Hulu to your TV in a jiffy.
Chromecast went through a pretty rough spell of supply shortages back when it first launched, but Google was finally able to meet demand and the device is readily available at Google Play, Amazon, and Best Buy. If only the Netflix offer were still widely available. Head to either of those destinations and get your $35 ready if you’re finally able to jump in on what would appear to be an incredible value, and grab your updated Hulu Plus app from the Google Play Store.
