07 Aug 2015 | Rasmus Larsen |

HBO Now recently came to Android and you can now enjoy the streaming service on your TV via Chromecast, too. It works with iOS and Android devices.

HBO Now is HBO’s stand-alone streaming service and competitor to Netflix. It started as an Apple-exclusive service but is currently expanding to more devices.

If you, like millions of other cord cutters / shavers, own a Chromecast you can push HBO Now to the big screen wirelessly. Chromecast takes over the stream to HBO’s servers so you can use your mobile device for other tasks. It works from Android phones and tables as well as Apple iPhone and iPad.

The latest “Android TV” based devices such as Sony and Philips’ 2015 TVs as well as media players like Nexus Player and Nvidia Shield also feature built-in Chromecast functionality.

HBO Now costs $15 dollars per month and has a free 1-month trial here.
