HBO Go Heading To Consoles

by Matt Bertz on Aug 03, 2011 at 06:42 AM

Get ready to watch some of the greatest television shows of all time from the comfort of your console.

At a company earnings call today, Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes confirmed that the popular streaming service would expand its reach from web browsers and mobile devices to connected televisions and game consoles.

Why is this such awesome news? Instead of dealing with the quixotic grab bag of non-consecutive episodes provided by Comcast and DirecTV's on-demand services, you can watch every single episode of every HBO original series at any time. If you haven't watched them already, we suggest you start with Deadwood, The Wire, and Game of Thrones.

No time table has been announced, but we'd be surprised if the service didn't launch on consoles within a year or so. Although there are no price details at this time, given that the service is free to HBO subscribers on other platforms, we expect the same for consoles.
