If you're an HBO subscriber and just can't get enough TV, then I've got good news for you! HBO has just released its official watch-it-on-the-go Android App, HBO GO. Of course, you have to be an HBO customer in order to use this app, but that's the only prerequisite as far as I can tell.

ss-0-320-480-160-0-6a13a793f60f6c7baa0d47c50a9571598274aa47 ss-1-320-480-160-0-be5d1f3f72411a0beec59ff4a2a5f7dbb7d6c261 ss-2-320-480-160-0-c6cea9ea866ad780f1f62ee1ff2b1a2e170e0ccc

The app allows you to watch all of your favorite HBO content directly on your mobile device, including movies and HBO original content. It should work on 3G, 4G, and WiFi, but unfortunately it is limited to US customers at this time.

That's not the only downside, either. A quick look through the reviews in the Market show that it's not working properly on some phone models (like the original DROID), and that it's a pretty large file that lacks the ability to be moved to the SD card - a pretty serious omission for an app like this.

If you still want to give it a shot, you can get it for free in the Android Market.

    Sick of reading reviews like "doesn't work. FC all the time. File too big. -- Motorola Cliq".

    WTF?!?!?! Get a better phone, cheap ass.

    You also neglected to mention that you have identify your HBO carrier before you can create an account. Not a problem for DISH, Comcast & a few others, but my Verizon FIOS service was sold to Frontier and Frontier is not a recognized carrier at this time. Thanks Verizon!

    "but unfortunately it is limited to US customers at this time."

    Is there ANY way to pull a Netflix on this yet? In other words, are there ways to spoof the app into believing you live in the States and that you're a long suffering cable customer?

    I don't mind subscribing somehow. But I DO mind moving to the States just to watch a bit of tv.
