HBO Go now headed to more devices
Time Warner has confirmed today that their popular HBO Go streaming service is headed to more devices, including the PS3, Xbox 360 and Internet-connected TVs.

CEO Jeff Bewkes says the service, which has been available via web browsers and smart devices like the iPad, has exceeded expectations of popularity and will therefore be expanded.



If you are an HBO subscriber, you can view all episodes of HBO original series on-demand, streaming from your phone, tablet or browser.

Overall, the apps for the service have been downloaded 4 million times, and users with the app watch more of HBO's content than those with subscriptions that don't use it.

It is unclear when the expansion will occur, or how long the gaming consoles will take to have native apps.

    Is it possible to get HBO Go without subscribing? I would pay a reasonable amount to watch HBO shows but I don't have a cable box and have no desire for the HBO network.
    I'd love to watch HBO Go shows, though.

    Unfortunately for them, all Blu-ray protections have been broken and BD rips can be found around the Internet, usually before the retail even hits shelves.

    Best thing to do is call them, you may be able to work out a deal to subscribe for $12-15 per month and just use the HBO Go apps without needing to add the service to your non-existing cable subscription.

    Great job Time Warner. How about allowing TIME WARNER cable subscriber access to it. Just a thought.
