HBO Go Now Supports Apple’s ‘AirPlay’

By Jacob Klein on Feb 12, 2013 to HBO News

HBO-AirplaySpeaking at Dive into Media conference today HBO president Eric Kessler announced that, as of today, HBO Go for the iPad and iPhone will now support Apple’s AirPlay.

For those of us who aren’t as technically inclined as the parents we’re borrowing our HBO Go logins from: Apple’s AirPlay allows video to be streamed wirelessly from your Apple mobile devices to your home television sets (via the $99 Apple TV device).

Check for this functionality right now because the president says it should be available imminently!

Just last week we reported that HBO Go would make its way to Apple TV in 2013 and this announcement fits nicely alongside that one. Kessler said that the goal is to eventually offer HBO Go accross all screens, all platforms and to HBO’s credit that seems to be happening rather quickly over the past year with moves towards video game consoles and other devices.

Are there still places where you’d like to see HBO Go where you can’t get it? Let us know in the comments.

UPDATE:  HBO has released the following video preview:

    I wish I could pay a subscription directly through HBO Go as oppose to pay the cable companies in order to watch HBO.

    I do not have cable tv. I do have apple tv. So who do I pay to get HBO go?

  • Will

    I am totally upset. I need to watch the new winter classic series, last years episodes were brilliant and got me watching ice hockey here in not so Great Bloody Britain as it is not available at all this year in the Uk. Please consider fans in other countries who love the sport as much as you do in the USA and Canada please. Last year the HBO series was available on Premier Sports TV.
    Kind regards
    Another pain in the ass

    Pretty soon the TV will no longer be the required appliance in a home’s family room.
