HOOQ expands viewing experience with Google Chromecast

MUMBAI: In a bid to expand the viewing experience of users in the country and address the home entertainment market, video-on-demand service HOOQ app’s latest version will support Google Chromecast.

With this, HOOQ subscribers will now be able to use Chromecast to cast movies and TV series from any connected device to their television screens. HOOQ offers unlimited streaming of over 15,000 English, Hindi and regional language films as well as TV shows on its platform. 

HOOQ chief marketing officer Ravi Vora said, “We are very thrilled to bring the best in class entertainment from HOOQ to Chromecast users enabling them to enjoy the best content on their televisions right in their living rooms. We believe this partnership further solidifies our position as the country’s biggest premium video-on-demand service.”

Chromecast is a thumb-sized media streaming device that plugs into the HDMI port on TVs. Viewers can use an Android phone, tablet, iPhone, iPad, Mac or Windows laptop, or Chromebook to cast the HOOQ app and its programming onto a television.

HOOQ launched in India earlier this year with a subscription price of Rs 199 per month. Users can access entertainment content, which can be viewed on upto five connected devices. The service also offers a unique offline download feature of up to five titles at a time ensuring that there is always video content to be enjoyed even when users are offline or facing connectivity challenges.

Customers, who purchase Google Chromecast through Snapdeal and Reliance Digital, will get free access to HOOQ for six months, which is worth Rs 1500.  

Some of the content that is available on HOOQ includes movies like The Matrix, The Lord of the Rings, The Dark Knight Rises, Iron Man 3,Don, Chennai Express, Barffi, Kai Po Che, Lai BhaariHarishchandrachi Factory and Chandrmukhi, and TV shows like Friends, Nip Tuck, ER and first and exclusively in Asia – Ash vs. Evil Dead.
