    @1 no paywall. I believe one if those apps did say they needed the ps3 to be authenticated. But all the others are gtg without plus.

    I guess that means STILL no HBOGo. How long is it going to take them to get it? I’ve been waiting forever.

    That is not Sony’s fault. HBO GO or whoever creates it has to make an app for the PS3 and 4 and for whatever reason they haven’t. They still haven’t made it work with Chromecast which works with a majority of streaming services.
