The HBO Go app is now available on the Amazon Fire TV, with support for the Fire TV Stick expected next spring. Until HBO launches a standalone streaming service, interested users will still need to authenticate their cable or satellite subscription.




"Given our longstanding relationship with Amazon, we're delighted to bring HBO Go to Amazon's Fire TV - offering our vast collection of award-winning TV series and movies to Fire TV users," said Jeff Dallesandro, HBO VP of Digital Domestic Network Distribution, in a press statement. "We're thrilled to add this platform to the suite of HBO Go viewing options, offering our subscribers compelling new experiences like Amazon's unified voice search."


The Amazon Fire TV is available for $79, $20 cheaper than normal, until December 28, as Amazon and HBO celebrate the adoption of HBO Go.
