HBO GO lets subscribers of the popular premium cable channel – home to shows like Veep, Girls, and Game of Thrones – view content from the web, mobile devices, and now their Chromecasts.
In addition to the mobile apps, hbogo.com will also support casting via the official Chrome extension. This gives HBO a few extra points as both Pandora and Hulu Plus – who both recently rolled out Chromecast support – have yet to support casting from their websites with the Chrome extension.
Google have also created a new Chromecast ad to usher in HBO’s arrival featuring Game of Thrones and no other than the Mother of Dragons herself.
The HBO GO Android and iOS apps have already been updated to support casting.
