Sony: HBO Go Coming to PS3, With PS4 to Follow16 Jan, 2014 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Sony Computer Electronics Jan. 16 said HBO’s TV Everywhere app — HBO Go — will soon be available on the PlayStation 3, with availability on the new PlayStation 4 console to follow, according to a blog post by Phil Rosenberg, SVP of business development for SCEA.
Rosenberg said HBO CEO Richard Plepler made the announcement at a media event in New York City.
Considered the benchmark of TV Everywhere platforms, HBO Go enables authenticated HBO subscribers access to on demand and some live programming, including “Game of Thrones,” “Boardwalk Empire” and “True Detective,” among others. HBO Go offers every episode of every season of HBO programming, including movies, sports, documentaries, and comedy specials, as well as special behind-the-scenes extras — much of it in HD.
