If you're among the minority of users who own an Ice Cream Sandwich device and have a cable subscription that includes access to the HBO/MAX GO services, you can now access your mobile video service on your device. HBO already has an impressive library of shows available on GO, including Game of Thrones and the Sopranos, and MAX GO is the companion Cinemax service that offers 400+ movies for instant streaming.

As always, you'll need to already have a cable package that includes access to HBO and Cinemax channels and that includes the bundled internet channels. Of course, we can hope that HBO and Cinemax will start offering their services without a cable package but sometimes the entertainment industry just has bad ideas.

The update is available in the Play Store now, so grab it from your device or the widget below pronto.

    Says it's not compatible with my Transformer Prime. Really? The one place I WANT to watch it.

    At least it's available for my Galaxy Nexus. Great.

    Still no tablet support?! WTF is taking them so long?!

    Doesn't work with the Asus Eee Pad Transformer either. Both apps come up as "Your device isn't compatible with this version." in the Google Play Store. Odd considering that tablets are better than phones for viewing video...

    The best part? After this update it stopped working on my touchpad (with the "unsupported device" message in the way. Yes it can sometimes be gotten around, but..!)
