A new update is being rolled out for HBO Now on iOS and Android, the refreshed applications bring support for Google Chromecast. This means that users will be able to cast HBO content from the app to their big screen TV provided that it has a Chromecast hooked up to it. It’s about time that Chromecast support was added to HBO Now, it has had support for Apple’s AirPlay for quite some time now.

For those who are unaware HBO Now is an online streaming service from cable giant HBO, it provides access to live streaming of the linear channel as well as all of HBO’s video-on-demand content for just $15 per month. There are no contracts or upfront charges and subscriptions can be cancelled at any time.

HBO Now was launched as an Apple exclusive earlier this year but about a month back the Android app was finally released, it has also been available through broadband providers.

Aside from Chromecast support today’s HBO Now for Android and iOS update brings push notifications so that users can be alerted about new content and whatnot. There’s also the usual slew of bug fixes and performance improvements.

The updated apps are live now available for download through the App Store and the Google Play Store.
