Back in November of last year, Microsoft unveiled the list of streaming video apps that would grace the Xbox One. Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant, VUDU, Crackle, and Redbox Instant were on the list, but HBO GO was only given a "coming soon" designation.

Well, today's finally the day. Xbox One owners can now stream HBO content with HBO GO.

According to Xbox LIVE's Major Nelson, "the following TV providers authenticate HBO GO on Xbox One: AT&T, Bend Broadband, Blue Ridge Communications, Cablevision, Charter, Comcast’s Xfinity, Cox, DIRECTV, Dish, Grande Communications, HTC Digital Cable, Massillon Cable/Clear Picture, Mediacom, Midcontinent Communications, RCN, Suddenlink, Time Warner Cable, Verizon, and Wow!

It shouldn't really surprise you that it's taken this long for the app to pop up on the Xbox One, as it usually takes new streaming media devices a while to get HBO GO.
