The most awaited app, HBO Go, has finally come to the Amazon Fire TV. They cut it close, but Amazon has made good on its promise by bringing the app to the Fire TV before the end of the year. In addition to the app being released, Amazon is adding HBO into the available voice search results alongside Showtime, Hulu, Crackle and others. That integration explains the need for the new Fire TV software update, version 184.108.40.206, expected in the next few days. Strangely, the app is not yet available for the Fire TV Stick. Amazon says HBO Go will come to the Fire TV Stick “this spring“. Amazon says today’s $79 Fire TV sale price in celebration of HBO Go’s arrival.
