HBO Now Support Extends To All Android TVs [APK Download]

Or in other words, HBO Now support for Android TV has actually arrived. Sure, you could sideload the app that was updated with compatibility back in October, but that software was aimed at Sony and Sharp smart TVs. Now you can install the app directly from the Play Store from your set-top box of choice. Alternatively, you can head to the website and download the app remotely.

[Update - Comcast Customers Are Not Invited] HBO GO For Android TV Finally Available For Download

Back in May of this year we reported on the imminent expansion of Android TV apps promised by Google, including an app for HBO GO. The timeline for its release was originally "sometime this summer". Looking out my window at the sodden mess of wet, decaying leaves plastered to my driveway here in Seattle, I think it's safe to say they missed that deadline. Oh well, I guess late is better than never.

HBO Now subscribers have had access to an Android TV app since the beginning of the month, so it's nice to see the far more popular HBO GO app finally catch up.

[Update: APK Download] HBO Now App Updated With Android TV Compatibility... But Only For Sony And Sharp TVs

HBO Now is the premium cable service's olive branch to cable-cutters, an attempt to reach out to the IPTV crowd before competition from Netflix an the like starts to seriously impact their bottom line. So why they chose to limit HBO Now to Apple devices in the first place is a bit of a puzzle - surely you'd want to make a paid service available to as wide an audience as possible?

HBO Now App Is Live In The Play Store, But It Doesn't Work On Rooted Devices

As announced earlier today, the HBO Now app is live in the Play Store for all devices. Although, when I say "all devices" I don't really mean all of them. Rooted phones and tablets aren't supported, because you're obviously a dirty pirate if you root your phone. Everyone else can get a free 30-day trial of HBO Now, though.

DirecTV Android Apps Can Stream 15 New HBO And Cinemax Live Channels After Latest Update

DirecTV's job used to be making sure that when you turn on your TV, there's something there to watch. Then these fancy mobile devices came around, and now the company is tasked with putting shows on those as well. Kids don't stare at big screens anymore, I'm told. Everything looks best crammed somewhere between 4.5 to 10.1 inches.

The latest version of the DirecTV Android apps offer up 15 new HBO and Cinemax channels, which you can stream live to your phone or tablet.

You can apparently even place a shortcut right on your homescreen. That way you don't have to fire up an app and switch through the channel listing.

HBO Plans To Launch A Streaming Service That Doesn't Require A TV Subscription Sometime Next Year

I've wanted HBO for a while now, but I haven't desired it strongly enough to subscribe to an expensive cable plan and put up with an ugly box under my TV. I'm a young twenty-something that has cut the cord with no desire to get tethered down to such a dated system, and since I refuse to pirate content, I've opted to miss out on some great shows. I would love to give HBO my money, if only they would let me. Well, it looks like the company finally will. It reportedly plans to introduce a streaming plan next year that will let people get access to HBO content without putting up with cable or satellite.

First Batch Of HBO Content Hits Amazon Prime Instant Video, Includes The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire, True Blood, And Others

HBO shows aren't the easiest ones to get our hands on, but Amazon has snagged a deal that should make doing so easier for Prime subscribers. Starting today, customers in the US will have access to all seasons of several HBO series (such as The Sopranos, The Wire, and Flight of the Conchords) and select seasons of several others (True Blood and Boardwalk Empire, for example). HBO has also aired several mini-series over the years (Band of Brothers, John Adams, The Pacific, etc.), and Prime subscribers will now have access to them as well.

In addition to shows, this arrangement will provide Amazon Prime Instant Video with movies such as Mary and Martha, Temple Grandin, and You Don’t Know Jack.

New HBO GO Ads Acknowledge That The Reason Most Of Us Watch Shows On Mobile Devices Has Little To Do With Features

HBO has a mobile app. It lets you watch shows, and it supports Chromecast. Really, that's all that matters here. There's little else it needs in the way of features that will determine whether or not users will turn to it when the opportunity comes to spend some time with HBO. The real question is - do you really want to watch all those sex scenes on the family TV?

Let's go through the checklist. Is your mom home?

What about your dad?

Both?

Heck, let's change roles for a second. Would you really want to walk in on your daughter watching this?

Original HBO App Disappears From The Play Store, No One Seems To Miss It Much

Everyone panic! The HBO app is no longer listed in the Google Play Store! Game of Thrones starts in three weeks, how are we going to - wait, what's that? HBO Go is still there? Oh, it's the other HBO app that's gone. The one that doesn't stream episodes and movies. The one that no one uses. Well that's all right, then.

Yes, HBO fans, you can rest easy: nothing is happening to HBO Go, the cable service's streaming app that's free for subscribers. The previous HBO app, which featured a television schedule and various behind-the-scenes goodies, seems to have been un-published.
