Google's Chromecast HDMI streaming TV dongle has now added support for three pay cable television Android apps: Showtime Anytime, Starz Play and Encore Play.

Assuming your cable TV provider supports these apps, and assuming you are a paid subscriber to one or more of these channels already, this development means that if you own a Chromecast, you can now stream and watch the large selection of movies and TV shows from these networks from your Android smartphone or tablet. Yes, you can catch up on Homeland on Showtime, Outlander on Starz and whatever late 1990s movies are playing on Encore.

Which pay cable TV network is your favorite? Thanks to Anthony and Kennith for the tips!
