After three long months of waiting, Android users will get their HBO fix soon enough, as the HBO Now app no longer tied to Apple only.
HBO Now is the movie streaming app released by the giant network, that has had amazing success among movie lovers all throughout the county, despite its rather expensive monthly rates. HBO has been charging $14,99 a month, which is an arguably steep price.
But HBO fans are used to having to put in a bit more money in order to get access to the bold content provided by the company. It has been like that ever since HBO came to cable. It lured in its subscribers by giving them a month of free access, which proved to be just enough to get them absolutely addicted.
HBO Now has done the exact same thing during the first month of its release, and the public responded accordingly, as the app registered exceptional success.
Back then it was only available on Apple gear, such as iPads and iPhones, but now HBO is free to take its app wherever it might want to.
It seems that the app will soon be offered through Amazon Fire TV and Google Chromecast and many other providers and the company has serious expectations from their wonder app, as they have predicted 75 million new users will come from the Android-based market.
The next few months will tell if these are mere great expectations or if HBO will be its regular record breaking self and score even higher than expected.
The advertisement slogan that the company has assigned to the app is proof of the confidence that they have in it. It says “HBO Now. It’s HBO. All you need is the internet” and it is perfectly representative of the bold nature of the film network.
So will Android users tune in to see the latest episodes of “True Detective” and “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver” and to binge watch all the “Game of Thrones”, “The Sopranos” and “True Blood” on HBO Now? Only time will tell, but deep down, everybody knows that the app can be nothing short of outstanding.
