This is amazing news! Now, how long til Roku’s supported, folks? (Kidding!)
HIDIVE announced that their platform now supports Google’s Chromecast. The site supports all generations of the device, as well as Chromecast-enabled smart TVs.
This is the second major platform add for HIDIVE, who added support for the Amazon Fire in May.
HIDIVE launched in June 2017, shortly after acquiring the network streaming assets from The Anime Network. The publisher previously launched apps on iOS and Android. HIDIVE announced that they would launch out of their beta period in March. On March 26, HIDIVE launched their DubCast initiative, which sees the publisher streaming dubbed versions of shows within two weeks of their Japanese airing.
Since its inception, HIDIVE has primarily streamed Sentai Filmworks’ library of titles, and scooped up the exclusive streams to dubs of shows like Food Wars! and Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto. In addition, though, the publisher has added numerous high-profile classes that include Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Space Runaway Ideon, and Lone Wolf and Cub (live-action).
