PS3 Finally Gets HBO Go App Today; PS4 Version in Development

PlayStation 3 - HBO Go

According to an official announcement made on the PlayStation Blog today, PlayStation 3 owners are going to finally be able to stream HBO content on their consoles through the network’s free streaming app.

The HBO Go app will be available on the PS3 today and be free to download. Users though will require an HBO subscription from their cable or satellite provider to access on-demand content.

Unfortunately for PlayStation 4 owners, the app is currently available for the PS3 only. PlayStation executive Phil Rosenberg stated that Sony is working “diligently” with HBO on the PlayStation 4 version but at this time can’t announce a release date.

The HBO streaming app first arrived on the Xbox 360 nearly two years ago. It has taken Sony that long to port it over to its side. That said, much like the PS4, the Xbox One has also to yet be granted access to the popular app. Microsoft has promised to deliver the app to Xbox One sometime this year.
