HBO Go Can Now Be Streamed Over AirPlay to Your Apple TV
A few weeks ago, Bloomberg News reported that Apple is currently in negotiations to start carrying HBO Go as soon as mid-2013.
Today, HBO COO Eric Kessler confirmed the news, according to All Things Digital at their conference, as well as announcing that they were adding AirPlay capabilities to their app - TODAY!
This means that if you've got their App, you can now stream content straight to your Apple TV. It's not quite as sexy as having a direct app will be -- but it's definitely a step in the right direction.
HBO GO draws on a vast library of around 1,000 hours of HBO Original programs including series, films and other special programming such as documentaries, entertainment specials, family content and stand-up comedy. Exciting lineup of programs include the latest seasons of award-winning and critically acclaimed series, GAME OF THRONES, GIRLS, TRUE BLOOD and VEEP. Popular series such as BAND OF BROTHERS, THE PACIFIC and THE NEWSROOM will also be available. Subscribers will be able to select what they want to watch on the device of their choice, giving more control to the viewer.
Apple TV users can already choose from an incredible selection of programming including over 15,000 movies and over 90,000 TV episodes on the iTunes Store. Apple TV also offers great content from Netflix's streaming catalog, live sports from MLB, NBA and NHL as well as Internet content from Vimeo, YouTube and Flickr.*
