HBO GO is now available on Google's Chromecast alongside Netflix, Hulu, Pandora and YouTube. Adding HBO means that the device can compete more successfully against Apple TV and Roku and the Chromecast feature will be available to HBO subscribers via all major U.S. pay TV providers. HBO GO is currently available on the Xbox 360, Apple TV, Amazon Kindle Fire and Samsung Smart TVs as well as iOS and Android devices so adding Chromecast as a distributor was surely only a matter of time?
