HBO Now Streaming Comes to Xbox

Long tied to agreements with cable providers, HBO has gradually appeased cord cutters with the introduction and expansion of its streaming services. The network’s other streaming option, HBO GO, arrived on Xbox in 2014 for those with a subscription via a pay TV provider. The standalone HBO Now costs $14.99 and is available to anyone with an Internet connection. You can’t subscribe to HBO Now on your Xbox, you have to do it from an iOS, Android, or Amazon device, or add the channel to your Roku player. Once you do, you can access the subscription on Xbox and any other supported device, including phones, tablets, set-top boxes and dongles, smart TVs, and the HBO Now website. – Tom Brant, PCMag
