HBO GO Streams Game of Thrones to PS4 and PS3 Soon

Fit for a king

Soon you’ll be able to sit on your throne watching on-demand episodes of Game of Thrones, as Sony has announced that streaming service HBO GO is heading to the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. The oft-requested application’s absence has been a source of Sony supporters’ sadness for some time, but is finally set to send a signal to the abovementioned appliances. It’ll start out on the organisation's ageing home console, before expanding to the Japanese giant’s latest record breaking system soon after.

“With the HBO GO app on your PlayStation platform and an HBO subscription via your cable or satellite provider, you’ll have unlimited, on-demand access to your favourite HBO shows, like Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, and True Detective,” a chuffed Phil Rosenberg wrote on the PlayStation Blog. “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.”

There’s no word on the application expanding to the PlayStation Vita, which makes us think that it’s looking unlikely for now. Also, it’s worth pointing out that Canada’s out of the equation due to HBO’s restrictions. Still, after a long wait, it’s great that this is finally making its way to Sony’s systems. Even better, the platform holder sounds like it’s just getting warmed up. “I hope that we can continue to surprise you,” Rosenberg told a thankful fan. “I think that we will.”

Not a Europe thing either, I'd imagine, due to Sky and Xbox's bumchummery. But Now TV will stream it on PS3 I'd imagine, if you want to go down that route.

Dude, Game of Thrones is the best show I have seen in a long time. HBO is the only place you can see the new season and an HBO subscription is easily worth it. I love that Playstation is getting this app.

@BornOfEvil - Exactly.

I might sign up for HBO for a month in June to watch GoT. It will still be cheaper this way then spending $15 for HBO and another $5 for HBO on Demand. Have to wait and see whwt the Go app offers as far as sound and video.

Luckily, some guy on PSN gave me his HBO GO code, thanks so much for this! I can finally watch The wire, sopranos, and rewatch Game of Thrones again! Plus all the other shows, movies, and Louie C.K comedy specials!
