What’s that you say? Video content from Netflix, Hulu Plus, ESPN, NHL GameCenter, Vudu, Xbox Live Marketplace and the PlayStation Network isn’t enough for you? We’ll you’re in luck today my friend. During an earnings call that took place earlier today, Time Warner chairman and CEO Jeff Bewkes announced HBO Go is coming to gaming consoles.
“We will widen the availability of HBO Go to include connected TVs, game consoles and other connected devices,” Bewkes said.
HBO Go allows HBO subscribers from certain cable providers to watch over 1,400 HBO shows on demand. Last April, HBO Go was released for iOS and Android devices. If you don’t have cable, satellite service or subscribe to HBO, you won’t be able to access the service.
“The mobile application [HBO Go] has already been downloaded close to four million times,” Bewkes said. According to Bewkes, 85% of HBO Go users watch more HBO than they have in the past.
HBO Go for consoles doesn’t have a specific launch date, but look for it sometime this year.
