HBO GO(es) to Android TV

HBO GO is HBO’s streaming service that is paired with a cable subscription. Unlike HBO Now, which is a separate subscription service, you require a cable subscription to use HBO GO. On the plus side, HBO GO is a free addition.


Android TV owners who didn’t want to pay extra for HBO Now have been left in the dark for the past few weeks, but now they can download HBO GO for Android TV. It’s free to download in the Google Play Store, although you’ll need to authenticate with a cable service.

Unfortunately, the list of cable providers does not include Comcast. Android Police reports that Comcast subscribers will be unable to use the app.

Also, I apologize for the title.
