HBO Now Arrives On Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick
After arriving on Android devices and Chromecast earlier this summer, HBO Now has made its way to Amazon’s Fire TV and Fire TV Stick devices.
With a monthly subscription of $15, one can have access to shows like “Game of Thrones” and “True Detective.”
According to CNET, HBO Now will show all of HBO’s original series and new shows at the original time of broadcast. The service is similar to Netflix, where it streams the particular show and movie through the Internet on-demand.
Original series and classic hits available on HBO Now
Running HBO Now does not require users to have a cable subscription. The streaming service is also available for Apple devices like iPhones and iPads, and Android devices.
As reported by PC Mag, the streaming service features shows like “Silicon Valley,” “Veep,” and “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver,” in addition to classic and hit shows like “The Sopranos,” “True Blood,” “The Wire,” and “Deadwood.” On the movies front, it includes releases like “Gone Girl,” “Horrible Bosses 2,” and “Birdman.”
However, the app has not yet been made available on Roku, which CNET rates as its favorite streaming service.
“I don’t have any more details to share, however, you may have seen that a HBO spokesperson recently said ‘I don’t have specific details to share about Roku timing, but our goal has always been to make HBO Now have parity with HBO Go in terms of devices supported.’,” a Roku representative said.
