Hulu adds Cast button to mobile apps to support Chromecast streaming

The Google Chromecast media-streaming dongle is now able to support video from Hulu. An update to the Hulu Plus mobile app for the iPad and Android will add a Cast button to the menu, which then starts playing the selected TV show through the Chromecast device, with the app acting as the remote control. Support for the iPhone is "coming very soon," according to the Google blog.

Netflix gains four more seasons of NBC shows

Netflix has secured more content for its service in the United States, stemming from a long-term deal it has with NBC. Variety reports that the streaming service has started hosting the final seasons of The Office and 30 Rock, bringing the total episode count on Netflix to 192 and 135 episodes respectively. Parks and Recreation season 5 and season 4 of Parenthood are also available to download.
