Amazon announced this afternoon that HBO Go is now available through Fire TV. Along with HBO’s entire catalog of shows, Amazon and HBO have also included voice search throughout the app, so a simple press of the Fire TV’s voice button will allow you to find Game of Thrones or The Wire without typing a thing. Of course, HBO Go requires an HBO subscription through “participating affiliates.”
If you were looking for Fire TV Stick integration, you will have to wait until “this spring,” according to Amazon.
And if you are interested in the Fire TV, now would be the time to buy one. Amazon is selling their media box for $79, which is $20 off the regular retail price. I can tell you that I actually prefer the Fire TV over Google’s new Nexus Player and Android TV, if that means anything.
