HOOQ just got a lot better. The subscription video-on-demand service has just pushed an update to its mobile app, adding what it earlier promised, and what many users have been waiting for: Chromecast support. The update means you can now stream any of the 30,000-plus videos on the HOOQ platform to an HDMI-compliant TV or monitor fitted with a Chromecast dongle, which is sold separately.
HOOQ now works with the Chromecast dongle, allowing you to stream any of the 30,000-plus videos on the platform to a TV with an HDMI input.
Globe Telecom is currently bundling the first-generation Chromecast with broadband deals starting at P1,299 per month. If you already have a DSL or fiber line, you’d have to fork out around P1,600 (or $35) for the dongle itself, a fair price to pay for the convenience of wirelessly streaming content to the biggest screen in your home.
