HBO has been good to us, you guys. Seemingly, HBO unofficially encourages HBO Go account login sharing which makes it possible for the economically disadvantaged to keep up with John Oliver and Arya Stark. But that may not be enough for some people. What if you have a spare $14.99/month and a dream to possess your very own HBO account in your name? Well, the Google I/O conference brings more good news for Android users: HBO has just done us another solid by announcing the streaming HBO Now app for Android devices due out this summer (in time for Season 2 of True Detective, June 21st).
Originally exclusive to iOS devices, HBO Now allows those with cable company allergies to stream the HBO library to their phone, tablet, and computer. How else can they sweeten this deal? HBO Now will be Chromecast compatible (iOS and Android) allowing one to further sidestep the need for terrible cable company subscriptions (*cough*timewarner*cough*).
