April 1 is a day where many people would play pranks on one another, but you can be just as sure that the sun will rise in the east and set in the west, so too, will April 1 see HBO Go hit the Xbox 360 console, bringing yet another facet in terms of entertainment on the home console. According to Engadget, HBO co-President Eric Kessler mentioned that the cable network’s hugely popular HBO Go on-demand streaming service will be online from April 1 onwards. This is slightly more than a month to go, which should not be too long to wait considering how the service was looked forward to by many since last December.
Microsoft had already started to introduce more Xbox 360 streaming video options that range from content providers such as SyFy, Bravo, YouTube and Crackle. You will still need to be in possession of a valid cable account as well as an HBO subscription in order to gain access to the service, which can be accessed via Web browsers, Roku boxes, iOS- and Android-powered devices, and select Smart TVs from Samsung. There is no end to entertaining yourselves these days for sure, and competition among service providers are fierce to say the least.
