Fox TV Shows Come to Google Chromecast, Including ‘Empire’ Entire Season 1 On-Demand

Fox Broadcasting’s Internet-streaming service is now available through Google’s Chromecast adapter — providing access to full episodes of the broadcaster’s current and recent shows, including the entire first season of smash hit “Empire.”

But there’s a catch: Users must subscribe to a participating cable, satellite or telco pay-TV provider in order to watch most of the Fox content through Chromecast (or other devices). That includes access to the full 12-episode run of frosh sensation “Empire,” the music-biz drama starring Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson. Separately, Hulu inked a pact in March with 20th Century Fox Television granting it exclusive SVOD rights to “Empire,” although under the deal Fox retains in-season “stacking” rights.

To date, Fox has cut “TV Everywhere” authentication deals for its Fox Now app and Fox.com covering most pay-TV providers in the U.S. Those include Comcast, DirecTV, Dish Network, Time Warner Cable, Cox, AT&T U-verse, Verizon FiOS, Bright House Networks, Cablevision, Charter, Mediacom and Suddenlink.

Other shows available through Fox Now include “American Idol,” “Bones,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Family Guy,” “The Following,” “Glee,” “Gotham,” “Hell’s Kitchen,” “The Last Man on Earth,” “MasterChef,” “The Mindy Project,” “New Girl,” “The Simpsons,” “Sleepy Hollow” and “Wayward Pines.”

With Chromecast, Fox Now users can cast full episodes of shows from the broadcaster’s Apple iOS or Android apps — with Fox’s Android app Wednesday to be on par with the iOS version in terms of user interface and features. The Fox Now service now is available on 12 different supported platforms: iPhone, iPad, Android, Amazon’s Kindle Fire, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Xbox One, Apple TV, Roku, Windows 8.1, Windows Phone, Samsung, Chromecast and online via Fox.com.
