Winter is here for most of the U.S. and so is the HBO Go app on Xbox One. Get your fix of Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire or whatever your favorite HBO series is.
“Xbox is one of our subscribers’ favorite ways to access HBO GO and its incredible breadth of award-winning programming,” said Jeff Dallesandro, Vice President, Digital Domestic Network Distribution, HBO.
“Now, Xbox One users can get in on the action and Kinect with the very best HBO series and films on this innovative, state-of-the-art device.”
You’ll still need a HBO subscription through cable or satellite TV in order to use HBO Go, but that is changing. There’s a war coming, and HBO is firing the first shot next year. HBO will be launching a stand-alone service in the U.S. next year.
What about PS4 owners? You’ll be getting the HBO Go app too, but there’s no date on when. It’ll probably just pop up one day like it did on Xbox One. I would imagine you guys don’t have too long to wait.
The HBO Go app isn’t showing in the Xbox One store for some. But, a quick search should show it.
Major Nelson walks us through the HBO Go app on Xbox One in the video below. Game of Thrones your only experience with HBO? Watch True Detective, Generation Kill, Band of Brothers and Last Week Today with John Oliver. You know what? Just watch all of HBO’s original programming. You really can’t go wrong with any of it.
