HBO Now released as you read this on Xbox One, Xbox 360
The on-demand streaming service of HBO Now is available on Xbox One and Xbox 360 thanks to a recent update. All of the hit shows from The Sopranos to Game of Thrones are available to those with an HBO Now subscription. A subscription currently costs $14.99 a month; however, a free trial offered on the HBO Now website will let you test out the service for a month with no purchase necessary.
The news of HBO Now coming to Xbox One isn’t all that surprising ,but the arrival of the service to Xbox 360 does raise some eyebrows. It was recently reported that Xbox 360 development had ceased and that surely signaled a dying down period for the last gen console juggernaut. Perhaps its not to be, as a service like HBO Now is nothing to scoff at. (The Game of Thrones crowd alone is enough to validate the move to both consoles.)
Game of Thrones starts up soon, so this is sure to generate some noise -- not to mention a few extra subscribers here and there. HBO Now is available now on Xbox One and Xbox 360.
