Game of Thrones-watching-Comcast subscribers can now check out their favorite episodes on the HBO Go app as well as the Xfinity TV Xbox app for Comcast’s streaming on-demand service. To access the content in either app, you’ll just need the username and password you’d use for Xfinity TV.
The move will likely make a lot of Comcast customers happy, most of whom would rather go straight to the HBO Go app to watch their expensive shows and take advantage of the extra content not available on Xfinity TV (making of extras, out takes, interviews, etc.).
HBO Go recently made its way to the Xbox, following the iPad, smartphones, and set-top boxes. The app gained a lot of popularity among cable subscribers, but Comcast customers couldn’t use it until now.
