HBO GO Updated in Google Play, Android Tablets Now Supported

The wait has finally come to an end. HBO has released HBO GO with Android tablet support. Tabs running up to Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4. can run the new version and there is actually a nice new UI as well. At first, it is sort of confusing that all of these images are flying across the screen, but it’s something different and neat. Go watch some True Blood or Game of Thrones and enjoy.

Cheers Patrick and Sookie!

    It’s app’s like this that make using ParanoidAndroid worth staying on ICS rather than upgrading to JB. Just waiting for a Paranoid JB Rom and I’ll be a very happy camper.

      Also, very happy this post reminded me of HBO GO’s existence. Been wanting to watch Back to the Future II for about a week, but don’t own it, and its not available on Comcast On Demand, HBO On Demand or Netflix. But there it is on HBO GO. Awesome.

    Just learned about the Kindle Fire work around and now this. DAMN IT. Now for some Jelly support.

  • Kevin

    Doesn’t work on Bionic webtop 3.0.
    HDMI out not supported. Anyway to work around that?

    It doesn’t work on the LTE Xoom. You start it up and it eventually says “Unknown Error” and closes.

    • bull3946

      Actually. I take that back. It didn’t work last night when the app went live, but it works now. It must have been something server side they had to change.
