Hoopla Now Available to Stream to Chromecast

 

Hoopla Digital has always been compatible with Apple TV, and many simply connect their mobile devices to their television sets via HDMI. While these options are still available, they now offer an additional option: *Chromecast Compatibility!

Click here to check out Hoopla Digital and the rest of our eMedia offerings. 


*For those of you that are not familiar, Chromecast is a device that you may purchase from a retail store or online that plugs into the HDMI port on your home television. It is powered by a USB cable that comes with the product and allows you to use a smartphone or tablet as a remote control!
