Chromecast adds HBO Go

Chromecast has certainly taken the OTT device market by storm, and it seems to just keep adding new apps and premium content providers.

The latest is HBO Go. This morning blogger Dave Zatz noticed the new capability and let the world know via a tweet, which actually beat Google’s own blog post about it.

This is particularly interesting given the rumors about HBO considering offering access to HBO Go sans a cable subscription.  The company has been floating trial balloons for much of this year, and by making sure they are on what is turning out to be one of the hottest new OTT streamers, it could add significant momentum to their cord cutting ambitions should they pull the trigger.
