HBO Go has no excuse for not including support with its recent update.

Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and Google Play Music, Movies & TV.  You can also stream an entire Chrome tab from your PC or mobile device.

Love my Chromecast, but makes wish I had an HD TV with more than 2 HDMI ports. Chromecast doesn't play well with HDMI switch boxes, so I have to constantly unplug either my ROKU or PS3 to use it. I'd probably use it a lot more if it had a dedicated port, but until it gains more functionality, that where the others take priority.

 

I'm waiting on Slacker (the Roku app sucks), the TWiT app (gots to have me some Leo), Pocketcasts and Vudu. Those would cover 95% of what I do on my Roku, but it won't get replaced by the Chromecast just because of Amazon steaming support, which at this point looks to never be released for Android. I have tried tab casting Amazon, but it doesn't work very well. The audio is usually off by 2-3 seconds and the quality really suffers.

 

Screencasting games directly from my device is on my wishlist, but not sure if that will happen. The thought of Dead Trigger 2 being played wirelessly on my mancave 37" with a six-axis controller makes me smile.

I'm in the same boat.  Once my PS4 comes (2+ weeks !!!) I'm not sure what I'm going to do.

 

Agreed on Vudu as well.  My office just pooled our DVDs together and it's amazing what a few bucks will get you.  Hell, even my $60 Walmart/Philips BluRay has a Vudu app!

My ChromeCast would be complete with HBO GO, MaxGO and all related programs like that.  

 

Also, the ability to play downloaded videos on my tablet would be spectacular as well (this already might be a function but I have no idea).

I'm hoping Google adds Vudu support to Chrome cast soon, or better yet, adding support for it into Play Movies like Apple does with iTunes. I got a whole stack of DVDs just waiting to convert. The $2 per movie Hd conversion for 25 or more is a steal.

Yup.  And the 10+ movies for half off is also nice, but that expires in January IIRC.

I would very much like to see Vudu add support for Chromecast to their app as well.  Spotify would be great too.

Did you not switch over to All Access?
