We were originally led to believe that HBO would be bringing HBO Go – an app that’ll let you stream a sea of HBO content right to your device for free (if you have an HBO subscription) – on May 2nd, but it’s just popped up in the Android market ready to download. They warn that select devices won’t be supported and a quick look at our list shows the Motorola XOOM and the LG Optimus 2X grayed out when trying to download. The original Motorola DROID also seems to be giving folks issues judging by Market comments.
They’re probably working on a Honeycomb-specific version of the app in the case of the XOOM, and the LG Optimus 2X has not been released in the USA. (The T-Mobile G2X should work, though.) Anyway, if you’re an HBO customer with a supported provider (U-Verse from AT&T, Charter (Beta), Cox (Beta), DIRECTV, DISH, Suddenlink, Verizon and Xfinity) you can go ahead and check this one out in the Android market. HBO assures everyone that even more television providers will be supported soon.
