When HBO Go arrived on the Amazon Fire TV in December of last year, Fire TV Stick owners were left empty handed. Amazon said the app would make its way to the Fire TV Stick “this Spring”. Well, it’s not officially Spring yet, but the wait for Fire TV Stick owners is over. HBO Go is now available on both the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick.
HBO Go allows cable subscribers of the premium cable network streaming access to the network’s content. That is, of course, if your cable provider allows it. However, your cable providers death grip on HBO will soon come to an end. The network will be launching their new stand alone service, HBO Now, in a few weeks. The new service will not require a cable subscription, but instead cost $14.99 a month on its own as a stand-alone subscription. HBO Now will initially be exclusive to Apple products for 3 months, after which it’s expected to make it’s way to Fire TV devices.
