Amazon Fire TV Gains HBO GO Streaming

Amazon Fire TV gains HBO GO streaming

Amazon has announced that HBO GO will now be streaming to Amazon Fire TV customers. Customers with HBO's subscription can now bring that experience to the Fire TV set-top box starting today and Amazon's more affordably priced Fire TV Stick will also gain HBO GO streaming capabilities in spring.

Since launch, Amazon Fire TV has more than quadrupled its selection, with over 700 apps and games now available. With the addition of HBO GO, Fire TV customers now have access to over 1,700 titles including every episode of new and classic HBO series, as well as HBO original films, miniseries, sports, documentaries, specials and a wide selection of blockbuster movies.

 HBO Go added to Fire TV

  • Amazon adds HBO Go to the Fire set-top box in a move that it hopes will increase the device's attractiveness with consumers.
  • HBO and Amazon already have an online licensing deal which gives Fire owners an exclusive crack at streaming HBO shows three years after they premiere.
  • The addition of HBO Go to the Fire TV gives HBO subscribers instant access to the network's current programming
