HBO Now, Food Network, Travel Channel and Pokemon TV Launch on Chromecast

HBO added Chromecast support to its Android and iOS apps Thursday, making it possible for Chromecast users to select shows on their mobile device and then launch playback on their TVs. This comes after HBO Now first became available on Apple devices on April, only to expand to Google’s smart phones and tablets in July.

HBO Now has already been streaming through Amazon’s Fire TV and Apple TV.

Chromecast users are also getting a bit more TV content courtesy of Food Network and the Travel Channel, both of which have added casting support to their apps as well. And finally, Pikachu and Co. are also available for Chromecast, thanks to Pokémon TV adding Google cast support.

Google has sold more than 17 million Chromecasts since first introducing the device two years ago. Recently, Google started selling a Chromecast Ethernet adapter for better connectivity, but there’s no word on when Google will introduce the next version of the streaming dongle.
