HBO Now is coming to Android TV & Chromecast

28 May 2015 | Rasmus Larsen |

Google has just announced that the HBO Now streaming service is coming to Android TV, Chromecast, and Android, following an exclusive launch period on Apple's devices.

Coming next month

HBO Now is HBO's stand-alone streaming service that requires no cable TV subscription. It is available for $14.99 per month. Besides that you just need internet and a device that supports HBO Now.

Until now, HBO Now has been available only on Apple's devices such as Apple TV as part of an exclusive deal. That will end soon. Google announced at I/O 2015 that HBO Now is coming to Android TV, Chromecast, and Android.

No exact launch date was disclosed, only "this summer", but Google adds that it will be online in time for the new True Detective season (June 21st).
