How to cast HBO GO to your TV

You can use Chromecast to cast HBO GO from your phone, tablet, or computer to your TV. 

Important  Chromecast and the device with HBO GO must be on the same Wi-Fi network and meet the minimum device and software requirements.

Cast from your phone or tablet

  1. Turn on your TV and make sure Chromecast is set up and plugged in.
  2. Open HBO GO on your phone or tablet and start playing a video.
  3. Along the top of the player, tap the Google Cast button. If you don't see a Cast button, try casting from the Google Home app (see section below).
  4. Tap the device that you want to cast to. Once you're connected, the Cast button turns blue and the video starts playing on your TV.

When you're done casting, tap the Google Cast button and then tap Disconnect.

Cast from the Google Home app

Here's how to cast from the Google Home app:

  1. Make sure your Chromecast and phone or tablet device are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
  2. Open the Google Home app.
  3. Tap your Chromecast device.
