HBO makes some of the most popular TV series viewed in the U.S. and around the globe. However, those who don’t subscribe to HBO or HBO Go don’t have any other means of accessing the content apart from going down the pirate route, which is illegal. That’s probably why the folks at HBO decided to offer another alternative, one that doesn’t require any subscription. Seven of the most popular series are now available from the Google Play Store in both standard definition and high definition, for you to legally enjoy on your Android device.
The Google Play Store now plays host to seven of HBO’s most popular shows which include Boardwalk Empire, Girls, The Newsroom, Game of Thrones, Veep, The Wire and True Blood. Prices per episode range between $1.99 and $2.99, those who want to them in high definition would need to pay a dollar more. The offering caters to binge watchers as well, offering entire seasons of the aforementioned series for purchase. Prices for entire seasons vary between $19 to $29. International views are out of luck though as HBO content is exclusive to U.S. customers only at this point in time. This is just the start of HBO’s partnership with Google, there are plans to bring more shows, documentaries, movies and other content in the future.
