PS3 HBO fans can rejoice. After years of neglect, HBO Go is finally launching on PS3. Just in the nick of time as well, Game of Thrones Season 4 is only a month away!
Sony made the official announcement on the PS Blog. PS3 users can download the HBO Go app today with the upcoming PlayStation Store update. Sony also said that they are working “diligently” with HBO to get the PS4 version ready as soon as possible. Still no word on if a PS Vita version will be released.
The HBO Go app allows users who have an account with HBO to watch the content. Available on Xbox 360, iOS and Android devices, it is currently unknown why it took so long to bring the app to PlayStation devices. An Xbox One version is also being worked on.
HBO shows include Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, True Blood, Veep, True Detective, The Newsroom and Curb Your Enthusiasm among other shows. With HBO Go you can watch every episode of all these shows.
