HBO makes Silicon Valley, dozens of shows and movies free to watch this month

As the novel coronavirus pandemic is expected to peak over the next several weeks, having the masses stay at home will be most crucial during this time. But the lockdown orders do have their deleterious domino effects from unemployment to mental deterioration.

HBO will be available on YouTube TV this spring

YouTube TV has been trying to bridge that gap by offering a little bit of everything, including live sports, for US users. This spring, it'll also add HBO.

HBO finally lets you download shows and movies to watch offline, now also in Europe

HBO Max launching May 2020 with barrage of original and third-party content

If you ask any mainstream technology or media company, they'll tell you subscription services are the gold rush of the 21st century. What company wouldn't revel in the steady flow of dollar bills rolling in from a defined user base every single month? A recurring line of income keeps companies alive, after all. Looking to cash in on the subscription craze, HBO is launching its own streaming service, and there's a ton of content on the way.

HBO and Cinemax are coming to The Roku Channel

The Roku Channel started off as the streaming equivalent of the DVD bargain bin at your local Walmart, but it was free for anyone who owned a Roku streaming device. Earlier this year, Roku started adding external (paid) services to the channel, allowing users to watch Showtime and Starz content without downloading additional channels.

HBO NOW passes 10 million installs on the Play Store

HBO NOW has been the top grossing entertainment app on Google Play for a little while now, but the app just reached another significant milestone. It's ringing in the new year by the numbers, having just hit 10,000,000 installs on the Play Store. That's a lot of downloads, with some big implications for the number of subscribers the service has, though it's impossible to know for sure.

HBO GO and NOW apps updated with suggested content in search, Android TV improvements, and more

I know it's not Game of Thrones season, but some people are still watching HBO. It has some other stuff worth watching, I'm told. HBO's Android apps are getting some significant updates today with suggested series in search, as well as a ton of Android TV improvements. However, HBO's selection of apps is a little convoluted.

Some Google Play listings now show when content is available from other sources (like HBO)

We noticed over the last week that some listings on Google Play are showing when items are available via HBO's NOW streaming service. We aren't entirely sure how new this is, as neither company has made any announcements related to it. In fact, some of us here at AP aren't seeing it at all, regardless of whether we have HBO NOW installed or not.

Hulu adds live and on demand access to HBO and Cinemax, just in time for new Game of Thrones

Video streaming app Hulu has recently made great strides in its attempts to catch up with other similar services like Netflix. In the last few months, it's added profiles to support individual watch histories and introduced Google Home integration. It's also got live TV now, and you can read our thoughts about that in our recent review. No streaming service would be complete without quality shows and movies, and with that in mind, Hulu has now added HBO and Cinemax to its burgeoning list of content partners.

HBO Go and HBO Go for Android TV get big updates with ability to resume a series, binge mode, and more

HBO Go isn't a very good app—this is the harsh truth. Yet, people put up with it because HBO has content that they want to see. The app is getting an update today (standard and Android TV) that adds some long overdue features. We could complain that HBO Go is just now getting binge mode, or we could be thankful it's here. That's actually a lie; we can do both.
