Promising to help subscribers to its Google Fiber networks in six US cities access all of their favourite shows, movies, music, and more adding Google Cast capabilities directly to their Fiber TV Box.

Writing in the Google Fiber blog, Jared Nusinoff, Product Manager, Google Fiber says that Google Cast gives access to thousands of apps, right on your TV screen. “That means you can seamlessly enjoy the best of online entertainment and TV without changing inputs. At the click of a button, you can watch the Game of Thrones premiere on HBO, then head to Netflix for the latest season of House of Cards. You can DJ your party with Pandora, then scroll through pictures with friends using Google Photos. You can watch and listen to everything you love, whenever you want,” he advises.

“Casting is easy. Just connect your compatible mobile device or laptop to your Fiber Wi-Fi, then tap the Cast button from the apps you already know and love to send what you’re viewing to your TV. And since Fiber TV comes with Google Cast technology built-in, no additional equipment or set-up is needed. Over the coming weeks, we’ll start rolling out Google Cast on Fiber TV to all our TV subscribers. You can learn more at our help centre. Get ready for more season premieres, movie screenings, karaoke nights and more—all on your big screen,” he promises.
