So, does anyone know how to get a HBO Go app on the Kindle Fire HDX that actually has the casting option for Chromecast? I tried side-loading a few APK's I found on Google but they are all no different than the Kindle version when they get installed and loaded up. This is driving me crazy.

Actually, most of the apk's you find that ARE NOT kindle versions, can be quite different. They can be anywhere from one to a dozen versions NEWER.

I installed the Chromecast app. Installed the latest versions of Netflix, Hulu+ & HBO Go from the Play Store & after using Chromecast app to find the Chromecast device, all of them have the "Cast" button available.

So your device is rooted then? (Since you have Play Store). I wonder if that makes a big difference. I have not installed the Chromecast App on the Kindle yet just HBO Go and it has no cast button. Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube all have it though.

Netflix works fine with the sideloaded Chromecast apk here on on my unrooted HDX 7

Even works with Hola.
