It was confirmed earlier this year that HBO Go will be landing on the Xbox One. Even though the announcement was made the app has yet to be released for Microsoft’s latest console. Today there’s renewed reason to believe that HBO Go Xbox One release may just be around the corner. Many users spotted a tile on the Xbox dashboard which indicated that this app is “Now on Xbox One.”
The tile was showing up in the console’s dashboard but the app wasn’t available in the Xbox Store. Those who saw the title and then proceeded to the Xbox Store in order to download it found that searching for “HBO” in the store yielded no results.
Meanwhile representatives for the cable giant maintain that this application will be released for both Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 in 2014, but don’t provide an exact release date. An official ad for HBO GO on Xbox One went live on YouTube earlier today but the video was made private a short while later.
In a statement provided to Polygon, a representative for Microsoft confirmed that HBO GO app will be coming soon to Xbox One but when asked about a specific release date, only replied that “we do not have anything to announce at this time.”
Who knows when the app is going to arrive, but by the looks of it, we might not have to wait that long.
