HBO Now has a dedicated app for Microsoft’s Xbox which means that you can access HBO’s streaming service on your Xbox One and Xbox 360. The HBO Now app grants you access to the whole HBO range of programs: watch the most popular series of the moment or stay informed with thought-provoking documentaries.

We’re thrilled to give HBO NOW subscribers easy access to all that HBO has to offer through their Xbox console. Xbox has proven to be a favorite platform for HBO audiences to stream their beloved HBO shows and movies, and we are excited about this next big step in our partnership, said Jeff Dallesandro, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Digital Distribution and Business Development, HBO.

The HBO Now app lets you watch award-winning series such as: “Game of Thrones”, “Silicon Valley”, “Girls” or “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver”. If you prefer the in-house series, you can watch HBO’s “True Blood”, “The Wire” or “The Sopranos.”

How does this work? Sign in with your existing HBO Now account on your Xbox and that’s it. If you haven’t got an HBO Now account, you will definitely miss a lot of new series and movies. If you are undecided, HBO lets you watch the “Game of Thrones” season 6 on your Xbox One and Xbox 360 even if you haven’t subscribed yet. We are convinced that after this first episode, the first thing you will do is to get an HBO Now subscription. New customers can also start a free trial.

Don’t forget that HBO Now on Xbox gives you instant access to all of HBO – all the seasons of HBO’s original series, the latest hit movies with no TV package required. All this for only $14.99. Also, you can control it all with your voice via Kinect.

Once you launch the HBO Now app, you will never set foot in a movie theater again. You have all you need on your Xbox.
