Lightbox adds Chromecast and Panasonic Smart TVs to its device line-up
Posted on 9-Jun-2015 11:20 | Tags Filed under: News



Watching online TV has just become easier with Lightbox now adding Google’s popular Chromecast and Panasonic Smart TVs to its device line up.

The Chromecast streaming media player gives subscribers a wireless way to get Lightbox on to any modern TV screen with an HDMI port. That means they can choose from hundreds of brilliant TV shows to watch ad-free from the very beginning - including new and exclusive shows such as Outlander, UnREAL and Wolf Hall. Lightbox is now also available on selected Panasonic VIERA Smart TVs (2014 and 2015 models).

Chromecast is a small device that plugs in to the HDMI input on your TV and uses your home Wi-Fi network to stream video content. Using the Lightbox app on an Android phone or tablet or Lightbox’s iOS app for iPhone or iPad, users can cast Lightbox shows direct to the big screen.

Lightbox CEO Kym Niblock says: “We’ve streamed the equivalent of 7.4 million hours of TV since launching. It’s clear our viewing habits are changing, as many New Zealanders are now watching their TV via the internet. We know our customers love watching Lightbox on the big screen. We’ve seen big-screen viewing increase by more than 400% since we launched our first Smart TV app last November. Adding Chromecast and Panasonic means we can put Lightbox into the homes and onto the big screens of even more TV lovers, and it’s perfectly timed to provide great TV options during the cold winter months ahead.”

Chromecast and Panasonic are the latest to join a raft of devices that Lightbox is available on. These include Samsung Smart TVs, desktop PCs, laptops, Android tablets and phones, iPads and iphones and via Apple TV with Airplay plus PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 consoles.
