HBO Now is expanding to Android devices, breaking the standalone streaming service out of Apple’s ecosystem for the first time.
Sundar Pichai, senior vice president of products for Google, announced the new offering at today’s Google I/O developer conference. Users will be able to stream Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley and other HBO shows to their TVs through Chromecast or other Android TV devices without a cable subscription to the premium channel.
The release date for the app on Android has yet to be announced, but HBO Now will cost $14.99 per month for unlimited streaming of nearly all HBO’s catalogue.
The Google I/O keynote is in progress, available for streaming here.
