HBO Now is heading to Android
Summer can’t get here fast enough.
Apple may have had a period of exclusivity, but HBO is not content with gating HBO Now to any individual platform—soon, it will be available via another major digital distribution partner: Google Play.
This summer, HBO Now will be available for download on Android devices. It will also feature Chromecast support for iOS, Android, and Web browsers on desktop and laptop computers, and soon after, Google will make HBO Now, as well as its TV Everywhere counterpart HBO Go, available on Android TV.
The announcement was made by Sundar Pichai, SVP of products at Google, during his keynote presentation on the first day of the search giant’s annual I/O developer conference.
“We’re looking forward to expanding our relationship with Google through HBO Now. We have seen through social media that there is great demand for the service among Android and Chromecast users and we’re excited to deliver HBO NOW to them,” said Bernadette Aulestia, EVP of domestic network distribution at HBO, in a statement released to the press.
