HBO GO 'coming soon' to PS3 and PS4 in the US

App will offer on-demand access to shows including Game of Thrones

HBO and Sony have teamed up to offer the HBO GO app on PlayStation devices.

As reported on the PS Blog, HBO CEO Richard Plepler announced the partnership at the inaugural Buzzfeed Brews event in New York City. The deal will see HBO GO launch "soon" on PS3, with a PS4 version to follow.


Sony Computer Entertainment America senior VP of business development Phil Rosenberg said: "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."

In addition to Sony's Music Unlimited and Video Unlimited services, PS4 launched in the US in November 2013 with a range of third party entertainment apps including Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus and Netflix.

The HBO Go app hit Xbox 360 in March 2012, although it's not currently available on Xbox One.
