Hulu Says Chromecast Support Is On the Horizon

It’s only a matter of time before the biggest streaming services introduce support for Google’s little Chromecast dongle—give it time, sit back. HBO already said it’s “actively exploring” support, and now Hulu is throwing its name into Google’s corner. The search giant’s $35 streamer is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with, especially as more and more developers are hopping on board.

As with HBO Go, Hulu hasn’t revealed a specific timeframe for Chromecast support, though we’d imagine it won’t take more than a few months. Netflix is already onboard, and there have been hints of HBO Go already being worked on; Hulu executives are probably voicing support to drum up excitement before its imminent release. Maybe the company will throw in free Hulu Plus with the purchase of Chromecast, too?

In addition to merely introducing support, Hulu told Variety it’ll also look into Plus integration for iOS, meaning Android won’t get exclusive dibs on any special features. Chromecast is one of those great devices made better by developer support—it’ll be fun to see where the streamer eventually ends up. And for just $35, I’d say buyers are getting some excellent value in the years to come.
