'HBO Now' launches just in time for HBO favorites

HBO's Standalone Streaming Service Could Launch April 2015
HBO's Standalone Streaming Service Could Launch April 2015


For months we have been waiting on pins and needles for the new HBO Go streaming service. The wait is over and we can all finally enjoy favorites like "Veep," "True Detective" or "Game of Thrones," without stealing our friend's HBO Go password.

Titled "HBO Now," the streaming service launches exclusively on Apple TV, giving users the capability to watch their content on the go.

"HBO Now" is a bit different than "HBO Go" in that with "HBO Now" you will be paying a platform partner to view the content. If you have an Apple TV, you can relish in the amazing gift of a trial month for free. After that, iTunes will then bill you $14.99.

The price is almost twice as much as competitors, like Netflix, but given the shows HBO has lined up, I doubt that it will be an issue. Although, cheaper would be better, right?

Anyway, HBO is one of many companies who will now have stand-alone platforms. Among them are Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and CBS.
