We heard earlier this year that HBO Go will be hitting the Xbox One. However, despite the announcement being made the app has yet to be released for the console. Well, today we have more reason to believe that the HBO Go Xbox One release may be coming very soon.
That is because several users have spotted a tile on the Xbox dashboard which indicates that the app is “Now on Xbox One.” That’s good news for those waiting on this service. Hopefully it will be soon.
The tile was in the console’s dashboard but the app was not available in the Xbox Store. Some who saw the title and then went to the Xbox Store to download it found that searching for “HBO” in the store got them no results. But at least we know that it is on the way. Representatives for HBO still say that the app will be released for the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 in 2014, but we don’t have an exact release date. And the year is almost over.
A representative for Microsoft confirmed that the HBO GO app will be coming soon to Xbox One but when asked about a release date, they only replied that “we do not have anything to announce at this time.” You would think that at this stage they would be happy to give a date. Maybe they are working out some tough bugs.
