Chromecast support added to HBO Go for Android

Listen up, Chromecast owners — a hot new app has been added to the list of apps which allow you to beam content from your mobile device to your TV. Google and HBO have announced that Chromecast functionality can now be enjoyed from the HBO Go app. Like any other app with Chromecast, this is a very simple and pain-free experience.

Hit the Chromecast button for any content you’re watching, and it’ll be beamed over to whichever TV you have the media streaming dongle hooked up to so you can continue watching on the big screen. You’ll also be able to cast content from using Google Chrome. Head to the Google Play Store for the update, and get the popcorn ready for those late night Game of Thrones sessions you’ll no doubt be looking to partake in.

    I am still waiting on slacker to pick up the slack with their app. I prefer it to pandora since pandora gives me the same crappy music over and over.

    Now just lose the requirement that I have a separate service provider – I’m done with cable and the dishes lol.

      when you say “separate service provider”, do you mean your cable broadband internet service provider?

      • EarlyMon

        I have vDSL for broadband, not cable. “Separate service provider” is the term used on HBO Go’s Play Store page to describe cable TV, Dish, DirecTV – last I heard, you need to get conventional HBO before you can get this.

          Not happening, unless you want to pay $20-30 a month for HBOGO. Because that’s probably how much they’d have to charge to make a la carte worth it.
