HBO Now on Android (Sucks)16 Jul 2015
HBO Now, HBO’s admission that most people don’t want cable, launched as an iOS exclusive 3 months ago. If you don’t have an iOS device, and weren’t sneaky enough to use a friend’s to setup your account then watch on a laptop, you’ve been sadly waiting all this time. But the wait is over! HBO Now is available on Google Play and it’s a really kind of pathetic port.
Unlike it’s older sibling, HBO Go, HBO Now on android doesn’t have Chromecast support, and for some reason blocks anyone with a rooted device from even installing it.
The reviews are already pouring in, and they are not happy.
Get it together, HBO.
