Original post: Back in May at Google I/O 2015, Google announced that the popular HBO Now television streaming service would make its way to Android sometime in the near future. That day has finally come, and the app is now available for download on Android phones and tablets, as well as Amazon Fire devices. Support for Chromecast, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick is coming soon, according to HBO.
The application has yet to hit the Google Play Store, but you can head to the Amazon Appstore to download it if you’d like. New customers who download the app will receive a 30-day free trial of the service. If you decide to stick with it after your 30 days are up, HBO Now will cost $14.99 per month.
HBO Now is a great way to experience Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, Veep, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and all of your other favorite shows and movies without the need to subscribe to a cable provider. Oh, and if you don’t have an Android device lying around, you can also access the service from your computer. Pretty nifty!
If you’re interested in downloading the app, check out the Amazon Appstore link below. We’ll let you know once it makes its way to the Play Store.
