Andoid users can soon watch 'Game of Thrones' without an HBO subscription
Soon, Android users won’t need an HBO subscription to watch Game of Thrones.
Google SVP Sundar Pichai announced Thursday during the Google I/O keynote event in San Francisco that HBO Now—the premium cable network’s separate streaming service—will be available to download in the Google Play store very soon.
The app is currently accessible through the Apple store at $14.99 per month. It comes as an answer to HBO Go, which gives cable subscribers unlimited access to stream shows (like GoT) and movies at no additional cost.
Bernadette Aulestia, EVP of domestic network distribution for HBO, released a statement, saying, “We have seen through social media that there is great demand for the service among Android and Chromecast users, and we’re excited to deliver HBO Now to them.”
