If you recall, last week we reported that HBO would release HBO GO for Android, iOS, and laptops, and if you have been waiting for this new service, today is your lucky day. HBO GO is now available in the Android Market and the service is free of charge for HBO subscribers (As Sean mentioned, you can’t purchase the service standalone). There are exceptions though, this service needs at least a 3G connection, and it is only available for U.S. customers subscribed to participating T.V. Providers (AT&T U-Verse, Comcast, Cox, DIRECTV, Suddenlink, Charter, DISH, and Verizon FIOS).
