Is HBO GO Headed to Android on May 2?

Early last week, HBO announced its new HBO GO and MAX GO services for subscribers that want to watch their catalog of award winning shows and movies online, but it caught our attention because it mentioned that Android support was on the way.  And while the press release may have said “later this year” as a release time frame, one of our readers noticed an HBO GO commercial that aired at the end of the premier for Game of Thrones last night with a date of 05.02.11.

Unfortunately for Comcast users, the service will continue to redirect you to an Xfinity page, so even if this app does go live in a couple of weeks, you’ll likely be locked out of it.  DirecTV users though, you are golden.

To find out if you’ll have access, check out the HBO GO signup page.

Cheers Matt!

    If you really want to take advantage if this cool feature, check it out from DISH Network. I work at DISH and just got word that HBO Go and MAX Go would be available for use through Smartphones, Androids etc!!! Now, with my Sling Adapter and phone I can access Dishonline.com for all the HBO and Cinemax, even the stuff they won’t play on Netflix!! I also get my Live TV and DVR anywhere I have 3G signal or Wi-Fi!! Check out the real deal at Dishonline.com!!

    Comcast customers need to use the xfinity app. :(

    Once again, Comcast being douches. They are so far behind the other providers it’s ridiculous. Still have a 1980′s looking guide and menu system. Doesn’t surprise me they will likely lock us out of this. Do they realize we don’t sit in front of a tv anymore? Video on the go, cmon already!

    Now if only HBO would make this available to folks that don’t have cable and just want HBO. I would gladly pay them a fee each month just to watch Game of Thrones.

    Can’t wait! It will make drooling over naked Emilia Clarke soooo much easier without the wife watching! :)

    apparently it works even if you are not subscribed to HBO! I just logged in with my Directv info and started watching Lottery ticket.

      Crazy same here!!

    • Arthur2142

      Maybe because HBO was running a free trial period through Monday on DirecTV. Are you still getting access to HBO GO now?

    HBO is crap, who cares.

    Cox in NWFL. Page loads but doesn’t fit the screen. No scrolling or resizing function. If you select a movie it perpetually loads but never plays. 20mps down on my cox internet on Thunderbolt.
    On a sidenote, Cox Connect app works at about 75%. You can do everything the app allows except any DVR functions.
