The HBO Now deal that Apple made has finally come to show what it’s worth, as the service is going live today, and is headed towards Apple devices across the United States. The HBO Now service that is the result of a partnership between HBO and Apple offers 3 months of exclusive content, and while many didn’t expect the feature to be launched this soon, it seems the fact that Sling TV snatched up a similar HBO offer sped things up a little. Apple’s new streaming service is now a go and official and HBO Now is the first demonstration of it.
Apple will be rolling out HBO Now to Apple TV, iPhones, and iPads today. The new HBO Now section over at Apple TV is live and has a lot of references that are similar to what Tim Cook said about the Apple Watch before it was launched. According to the website, HBO Now means that you won’t ever watch TV the same way again, so we’re talking yet another attempt at revolutionizing something. Don’t forget that Sling TV did the whole cord-cutting streaming thing in January, Tim Cook.
In any case, you can access HBO Now on the iPhone, iPad or Apple TV and until April 30, the first month of your subscription will be totally free. You should hurry up and get that offer while you can, then. HBO Now features exclusive content like Game of Thrones, Angry Boys, Band of Brothers, True Detective and more and according to Apple, you can even access the service from your iPod Touch, which is a neat addition/feature. You can check out HBO Now and get a subscription by going to the official website. After the first free month, you are going to have to pay $15 each month for the subscription.
