Using Chromecast to watch HBO GO on a TV

You can use Chromecast to cast HBO GO from your phone, tablet, or computer to your TV. For setup help, go to Chromecast Help: Set up Chromecast.

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 and sign in, if needed.
  3. Start playing a video.
  4. Along the top of the player, tap the Google Cast button.
  5. Choose 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.
  6. To stop casting, tap the Cast button and then tap Disconnect.

Cast from your computer
