Flixster gets Chromecast support, gives UltraViolet users a well designed app for casting



As time goes on, our favorite $35 HDMI dongle from Google continues to gain usefulness. In just the past week, we’ve seen Vudu, Rdio, and Crackle all receive official Chromecast support. The lastet to join the Chromecast craze is popular movie app, Flixster. With Flixster, you can see what’s new on DVD, check out what’s currently playing at your local theater, watch movie trailers, and most importantly, stream movies from your UltraViolet collection. The latest update also added movie download support for HTC phone users, SD card download support for KitKat devices, and UK users on Sony and HTC devices had a few bugs squashed as well.


Flixster is the second UltraViolet compatible app to get Chromecast support, following last week’s Vudu update. If you’re looking for a winner between the two, Flixster’s UI is just gorgeous and much more user friendly compared to their competition. Vudu’s app feels like a clunky web wrapper. Next up, M-Go?

  1. Wake me when twitch gets Chromecast support.

    1. The game streaming? I’m hearing a lot about this. I’m guessing the new-gen consoles have this built in? A lot of my friends keep talking about “watch me stream”.

      I may get into watching some streams.

    2. U could try Xbmc/navix and get twitch from that

      I do it with my ps3, not sure if u can on android tho

      1. Yeah it works on android just a bit behind and no chat is all

  2. How to watch Blu-Rays:

    1) Purchase Blu-ray
    2) Download torrent
    3) Put physical disc in closet, in case you ever need it again, or in case the extras aren’t part of the torrent (in which case, step 2.5 is “Rip extras.”)
    4) Watch movie where you want, when you want, and how you want.

    It’ll be a cold day in hell before I waste yet another hour trying to get UltraViolet to work.

  3. my vizio smart tv is then only thing stopping me from getting a chromecast

  4. but cannot download my movies in Flixster on my HTC One M8?
