HBO is expanding HBO Now, its subscription streaming service, to Amazon’s $99 Fire TV setup or the even more affordable Fire TV Stick that retails for $39 bucks.
HBO launched Now exclusively with Apple earlier this year, and brought the service to Google Cast and Chromecast just a couple of weeks ago. To be clear, Amazon Fire Tablet owners have had access to HBO Now since July, but expanding to the Fire TV devices will reach a much larger group of “Game of Thrones” and “True Detective” enthusiasts.
Roku, the final frontier for HBO Now, is now the only major streaming hardware platform that does not offer the service. HBO has yet to announce if or when that launch will happen.
