Google announced today that its TV streaming dongle, Chromecast, is adding on-demand channels Starz Play and Showtime Anytime to its catalogue of apps, making popular TV shows like Homeland, Penny Dreadful, and Da Vinci’s Demons available to Chromecast users for the first time.
Chromecast apps can be controlled with a mobile device, like a tablet or smartphone, with the content sent directly to your TV via the $35 dongle. The on-demand apps require a current subscription to its respective cable channel. Although Showtime Anytime is already available on Apple TV, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV, Starz Play is exclusive to Chromecast for now.
Also available are a series of party games. The titles added to Chromecast’s existing repertoire of over 50 games include Wheel of Fortune, Just Dance Now, Emoji Party, Big Web Quiz, Simon Swipe, Connect Four Quads and Hasbro’s Monopoly Dash.
