In oh, really, that wasn't a thing already? news, today is the day that HBO GO, HBO's on-demand streaming video app, finally lands on the PS3.
"Watch every episode of every season of the HBO’s best shows, including True Detective, Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones. Speaking of Game of Thrones, with the season 4 premiere airing on April 6th, you’ve got more than a month to get caught up on the first three amazing seasons."
Yeah, you have plenty of time to catch up on Game of Thrones. The season finale of True Detective is next week, so I suggest you get your ass in gear and binge on the first seven episodes of that before you take a trip to Westeros. That merely a suggestion–carry on as you wish.
HBO first announced that the PS3 would finally get an HBO GO app back in January.
For all the PS4 owners out there–sorry. You're going to have to wait a little bit longer–or maybe a lot longer. SVP of business development Phil Rosenberg would only say this about the future of HBO GO on the PS4:
"We are also working diligently with HBO to bring the HBO GO app to PS4."
Of course, HBO GO isn't the only high-profile app that the PS4 is still lacking.
Ok. But for PS3 owners with HBO subscriptions AND a cable subscription (ugh), stream away.
