You can now watch on your big screen TV as the video-on-demand service, which offers unlimited access to the best of Asian content, has been updated to support Google Chromecast.

In other words, subscribers can now cast shows and movies on directly from smartphones, tablets or laptops onto TV screens.

Chromecast is a media streaming device that plugs into the HDMI port on TVs – this feature is available for smartphones and tablets running on Android and iOS, as well as computers with Windows 7 or later and Mac OS X 10.9 or above.

“Video streaming is becoming more and more relevant as consumers take to mobile devices as their source of entertainment,” says dimsum chief marketing officer Lam Swee Kim.

“Over 80% of dimsum subscri­bers access their content on mobile devices and that’s why we are extending its features for our subscribers. They can enjoy premium content in high definition (HD) at an affordable price and stream to TVs.”
