In its continued efforts to improve, enhance and innovate the digital lifestyle of its loyal subsscribers, Globe Telecom launched Chromecast in the Philippines to offer Filipinos a new way to stream their favorite entertainment content at home.
Chromecast is a thumb-sized media streaming device that plugs into the High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) port of one’s television set at home. With Chromecast, customers can cast their smartphone, tablet, or laptop to a bigger screen for a better and more inclusive viewing experience. Chromecast can also be used as a remote control for TV, set-up a party at home with the TV set as instant DJ or VJ, enjoy family game-time with smartphones as controllers, watch shows that only selected users can hear, and view Chromecast-ready apps.
Chromecast is compatible with Android devices, tablets, iPhones, iPads, Macs or Windows laptops or Chromebooks, allowing users to cast their favorite entertainment and apps to the big screen. To use Chromecast, customers can plug in the device to an HDMI TV and a power source, download the app on a smartphone device, tablet, or laptop, authenticate the code, and click the cast icon on their apps to view content on TV.
Filipinos can enjoy the following apps which are Chromecast-ready: For TV and movies: HOOQ, CrunchyRoll, Stream2Cast, AllCast, Flixster, Dailymotion, Viki, SkyOnline, among others; for games: Just Dance Now, Monopoly Dash, Wheel of Fortune, Rube, Catch Phrase Blitz, FitFlap, Scrabble Blitz, Alien Invaders, Big Web Quiz and more; for sports: NBA App, MLB, Red Bull TV to name a few; and for photos and videos: YouTube, Chrome, Piccastr, BubbleUPnP, Pixlr, Lyve, Avia, Picture Cast, DayFrame and more.
On September 24, Globe Senior Advisor for Consumer Business Dan Horan led the company’s Chromecast partnership launch. There he said the telco’s global content partners are also Chromecast-ready, allowing customers to enjoy thousands of movies and TV series on HOOQ, watch live and on-demand NBA games via the NBA League Pass, and stream music and video content on YouTube.
Soon, Globe customers can get the Chromecast for free with specific plans.
