Microsoft Xbox One console owners will finally have access to the HBO Go app, available to HBO subscribers, with voice and gesture controls supported. The new app is now arriving for US HBO subscribers, and the voice and gesture controls will allow console owners to access the entire HBO catalog using a hand gesture or voice instructions.
"Xbox is one of our subscribers' favorite ways to access HBO Go and its incredible breadth of award-winning programming," said Jeff Dallesandro, HBO VP of digital domestic network distribution. "Now, Xbox One users can get in on the action and Kinect with the very best HBO series and films on this innovative, state-of-the-art device."
There are a wide variety of apps available for the Xbox One, including rival apps from Netflix, Amazon Instant Video and Hulu Plus - ensuring entertainment apps are available in the living room is an important role for Microsoft, Sony and set-top box manufacturers.
