PS3 getting HBO GO app, PS4 version to follow

By Brenna Hillier, Friday, 17 January 2014 01:45 GMT

Sony and HBO have teamed up to offer the HBO GO app, first on PlayStation 3 and later on PS4. This, of course, means you can watch Game of Thrones via your console without hooking a cable box to your telly – assuming you have an HBO subscription. HBO announced the app at the Buzzfeed Brews event in New York today, according to the PlayStation Blog, but no release date was provided, and the app is presumably for the US only at this stage.
