It had been speculated that Chromecast was gearing up for an update that would allow it to support HBO Go. Well, my mobile HBO loving friends we can now confirm that HBO Go is officially supported by Google’s PC to TV streaming device. They even put out this little promo video to mark the occasion:
For those of you unfamiliar with Chromecast Google released a small device (costing [amazon_link id=”B00DR0PDNE” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]about 35 bucks[/amazon_link]) that plugs right into an HDMI slot on your home television. After a bit of configuration you’re able to instantly send video from your phone, laptop or tablet right to your television. So you can see why the service would appeal to anyone wanting to watch HBO on their television!
There are several other ways to watch HBO online or on your television set and we list them here for those keeping score. What do you think of this newest addition to the HBO Go family? Are you a Chromecaster?
