HBO Go finally comes to Android tablets

The application will now work on Android tablets running up to version 4.04 (Ice Cream Sandwich), according to its listing on Google Play.


HBO has updated its streaming-video application to support a wide range of Android-based tablets.

The update, which landed in the Google Play marketplace yesterday, now allows HBO customers to stream the company's programming on tablets running Android versions up to 4.04 (Ice Cream Sandwich). In addition, HBO Go's latest version includes some new performance enhancements and bug fixes.

A report cropped up in May that HBO would update its streaming application to work with tablets . At that time, the company allowed Android-based smartphone users to access the program, but tablet owners were out of luck. Last month, HBO Go made its way to Amazon's Kindle Fire , seeming to indicate that further support was on its way.

The latest HBO Go version is available now to Android tablet owners. The app is available for free.
