Hulu’s Meredith Kendall told Variety that Hulu is “actively working with Google to bring Hulu Plus to the platform.”
This follows reports that HBO Go is also headed to the device. HBO’s Laura Young told Mashable, “We’re actively exploring supporting Chromecast […] but we can’t comment on specific plans regarding timing.”
Meanwhile, developers are already working on ways to allow Android smartphones to send local video files directly to Chromecast, which you currently can’t officially do with the device.
Unfortunately, the terms of the Chromecast SDK are such that Google must approve all apps that interact with the device.
