HBO Go, the app that gives users on demand access to the premium cable channel's movies and shows like Game of Thrones, might be coming to Xbox One soon.
According to WP Central, a user on the r/xboxone sub-Reddit linked to a Microsoft OneDrive account that contained pictures of the app running on Xbox One, which the user said is currently in testing. The images of the app have since been removed.
In June, Microsoft announced that more than 45 new entertainment apps are coming to Xbox One and Xbox 360 around the world by the end of the year, including HBO Go (which is already out on the Xbox 360). Some of these include Vine, ShowTime Anytime, Comedy Central, Major League Gaming, and new embedded Twitter functionality. Once these apps arrive, Microsoft's app catalog will increase by 25 percent to more than 225 apps in total. There are around 180 apps available now, Microsoft said on the Xbox Wire.
At the moment, you need to pay for a pricey subscription to a cable or satellite TV service in order to use HBO Go, but earlier this week, HBO CEO Richard Plepler also made the surprising announcement that HBO will launch as a stand-alone service in the United States next year.
