Chromecast

Answered

I understood late in 2018 that you were working on an update to the app that would allow use of Chromecast. It is now April and still no update.

What is the current status on this urgently needed update.

Re: Chromecast

OK. I have seen your previous message now and can see that you are probably referring to Bigpond Movies.

Good news, Chromecast functionality was introduced almost 2 months ago.
What you may not have caught up on is that the app is now called Telstra TV Box Office. So you will need to install that and you should be up and running.

Note: a Chromecast device counts as one of your registered devices (so tablet + chromecast = 2 registered devices out of the 5 total that you can have).
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: Chromecast

Yes, you are using an old app. There is no such thing as Bigpond Movies anymore. It got rebranded.

You need to install the Telstra TV Box Office app from the Play Store to get the new functionality.
