HBO GO coming to PS3, PS4

hbo-goHBO GO is finally headed to PlayStation platforms… well, home consoles at least. And potentially just in time for the next season of Game of Thrones.

The award-winning cable channel has announced that their HBO GO app is scheduled to be released for the PS3 with a PS4 version coming sometime after that. There is no word on a possible PS Vita app at this time unfortunately.

Read on for the announcement.

Earlier this evening at the inaugural Buzzfeed Brews event in New York City, HBO CEO Richard Plepler announced that HBO and PlayStation have partnered to offer the popular HBO GO app − first on PlayStation 3, with PlayStation 4 to follow.

With the HBO GO app on your PlayStation system and an HBO subscription via your cable or satellite provider, you’ll have unlimited, on-demand access to your favorite HBO shows, like Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire and True Detective. HBO GO offers every episode of every season of the network’s best shows. You can also enjoy hit movies, sports, documentaries, and comedy specials, as well as special behind-the-scenes extras.
