HBO Now for Android launches on Amazon devices, Google Play later today

Apple’s period of exclusive for HBO Now is over, and as promised it is on its way to Android starting today. The service, which gives you full access to HBO’s breadth of content for $15 per month and without the need of a cable subscription, is now available on Amazon’s Appstore for Kindle Fire tablets, and will be available in the coming weeks for Fire TV devices. The service should also find its way to Google Play at some point later today.

HBO Now shouldn’t be all that unlike HBO Go in that it gives you a clean and quick interface for accessing all of HBO’s content. Whether it’s Game of Thrones or a random movie currently in the company’s circulation, you’ll get access to it just as you would if you had more traditional access.

Unfortunately download links aren’t yet available, though we’ll be scouring the net for them and will update this post when they turn up. Oh, and we’re also hearing a month long free trial will be in order, though only Amazon has confirmed that to be the case for their particular version. Be sure to keep a look out for yourself if you’re interested!

[Update]: HBO has confirmed that all new users will get a free 30-day trial no matter which device you use. Huzzah!

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
