HBO Go Headed To Connected TVs And Consoles

Our connected game consoles are so much more than...well, game consoles.

Thus far, Time Warner's HBO Go service has proven to be successful, and CEO Jeff Bewkes has confirmed that HBO's TV Everywhere service will soon be available on connected TVs and video game consoles. It's already on web browsers and mobile devices but obviously, they wish to reach even more people.

HBO Go has continued to expand since it launched in early 2010; it now boasts every episode of every HBO original series. Bewkes says the mobile apps have been downloaded more than 4 million times since their launch, and HBO assumes the service deserves further expansion. We'll let you know when they announce HBO Go for the likes of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360; it's bound to make your home entertainment that much more diverse.

I couldn't stand that show. I wish they would have kept John from Cincinnati over that.

My guess is that u didn't watch enough of it. I truly hated it when I first saw it, but after 2 or 3 episodes, it really grew on me and I couldn't get enough. It does have dry humor like The Office does, so if it's not ur thing, then that's all I can say. They still make me laugh.

The funny thing is that when this comes to the PS3 I'll most likely watch it all just cause I can. I watch everything I can on Netflix.

Oh please, PLEASE make it to Australia as well!!! I love Boardwalk Empire, Mad Men and loved Flight of the Conchords!! Angry Boys is awesome too, but a show mostly catering to Australian multicultural stereotypes. I highly recommend it to all of you here if you haven't checked it out. Chris Lilly is a TV hero here in Oz.

HBO Go for PS3 in Australia and worldwide!!! Please make it happen!!!

Unless I've fallen into another dimension Mad Men is AMC.

That IS surprising, HBO hasn't put out a good show in ages. Or at least nothing as good as Dexter or Spartacus.

Rome; Deadwood; True Blood; Game of Thrones; Boardwalk Empire; and The Pacific are/were just some of the great shows that HBO has put out in the last 5-6 years or so. Their upcoming series, Hobgoblin, sounds interesting as well.

Have you not watched HBO lately? Game of Thrones was amazing. True Blood is great and the new season of Boardwalk Empire is going to be great too. I also think Hung, Bored to Death, How To Make It In America, and Curb Your Enthusiasm are good shows too.

Don't get me wrong cause Dexter is my favorite show and Spartacus was awesome but HBO has great shows.

I did hear Boardwalk raked in the awards so I'll give you that, I can't say Pacific was anywhere near as good as Band of Brothers.

The less said about vampires the better.

gonna have to disagree with you on this one World, those shows they listed are f ing great. Including true blood. Its about the only good show with vampires in it in my opinion. But Dexter and Spartacus are better imo

You are confused, Spartacus is on starz and hbo has got game of thrones is a top notch.Love that show and true blood is good as well,plus there are other good shows on there as well.They have always had good series at some point,so you are sadly mistaken.

Game Of Thrones > early Dexter > Deadwood > later Dexter > Spartacus > Rome > True Blood > Boardwalk Empire

I'm not too impressed by the ones Daze mentioned, though Hung was fairly good.

Band Of Brothers > The Pacific (much >); both were mini-series, though, and not intended to last.

If only HBO would do this and also come up with some way for me to give them money without having to go through comcast. I'd be SO down.

and thats the problem!
i dunno about you but id much rather the time sony spends on netflix and all this crap go to bringing the 8 days and the getaway 3 back!
i think M$ would be just a little more successful if they spent half the time they spent on getting ESPN, foxtell and all that crap on the 360, on some actual games!
i bought both to play GAMES!
you wanna talk to friends theres this great new invention called a mobile phone!
you wanna watch movies theres this great new invention called a DVD player!
or you could have it all on a PC, the thing that was built for it all!

Mr No Name strikes again. You are so out of the loop on everything. Just because you don't like something means that it shouldn't be there?
I have told you this before and I will say it again. Sony hasn't put any money or time into Netflix. All they have done is allow Netflix to put their App on the XMB. Everything is controlled by Netflix. You need to really do some soul searching, all that negativity will put some serious years on you.

I will agree with Karosso, you are f'n hilarious. HA HA HA

@Roger, don't bother dude, this guys is beyond help.
It goes like this: "Today congress approved a measure that would increase carbon dioxide emissions"
__________ Comments: and thats the problem! Sony spends time in congress and money emitting carbon dioxide, when they should be making games.

Also like this: "A tree fell in the woods but, nobody was there to hear it"
__________ Comments: and thats the problem! Sony spends time in the forest cutting trees and using noise cancelling headphones, when they should be making games.

You see, his reasoning skills are that of a dead amoeba LOL

I have a strong feeling that the people that worked out the deal to bring HBOgo to the PSN have NOTHING to do with the games dept.

__________ isn't only his username, it's also what goes through his head when he posts.

Really what points? Sony is not making the software, HBO is. Even if they were, its not as complex as a game, they can have this one guy design the damn thing.
You make no sense at all, but then again, there is no surprise in that.
I would like to apologize to the dead amoebas, they didn't deserve that insult...
