FreeHBO shared the stage at Apple’s Spring Forward event to announce the upcoming release of HBO NOW. The new service would act like the current HBO GO, but without requiring logging in with your TV provider, and already being subscribed to HBO. With HBO NOW, you can sign up for $14.99/month without the need for any cable or satellite subscription. HBO announced their new service would launch in April, and now it’s available in the App Store and on the Apple TV. You can subscribe once, and gain access to all Apple devices, and there’s a 30 day free trial if you sign up anytime in April.
HBO NOW has the obvious function of letting you watch any new HBO show as it airs whether it’s Game of Thrones, True Detective, Silicon Valley, Girls, and more. The highlight of the app though, is the ability to watch any past programming including all seasons of the shows listed above as well as past hits like The Sopranos, Sex and the City, and The Wire. The app also gives access to movies, including the latest hits, as well as news programs, documentaries, and boxing. Everything HBO offers both past and present is available to stream on all of your Apple devices for $14.99/month regardless if you have a cable or satellite subscription.
HBO NOW (Free, Universal) offers a new form of viewing entertainment, and there’s no reason not to give the 30 day free trial a try.
