Chromecast is a multimedia streaming device that connects to the HDMI port on a TV. With over 30 million units sold[1], Chromecast has become the most popular streaming device in the world today[2]. Right now, with HBO GO on mobile devices and Chromecast connected to the TV, users will be able to stream the platform’s content directly to their flat screen TVs while selecting content, adding subtitles and choosing audio language from the app.

With the addition of Chromecast, we are providing more flexibility to HBO subscribers so that they can enjoy our content anytime, anywhere“, said Francisco Smith, EVP of Distribution and Content Development of HBO Latin America. “With this launch, the user will be able to enjoy HBO GO on their principal screen at home and live the immersive experience of our premium content from their TVs.”

The platform also includes each of the series from the 15 years of HBO’s original productions in Latin America — such as Epitafios, O Negocio and Sr. Ávila — and offers a selection of the best international and independent films from the MAX channel.

HBO GO has a graphic interface that gives the consumer quick and easy access to content that can only be seen on HBO.
