HBO Go Will Bring Every Episode of All Their Shows to iOS and Android

If you're an HBO subscriber, the upcoming HBO Go app will let you stream HBO's entire catalog of very excellent shows and various movies to iOS and Android devices.

So that means every episode of every season of The Sopranos, The Wire, Deadwood, Entourage, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones, Rome and I'm sure there are more awesome shows, will be available on your iOS or Android device.

But sadly, it has the same requirements of the desktop version HBO Go, which requires an HBO subscription and is only allowed on the right cable providers. I'd rather just pay HBO directly than go through those jokers. HBO Go is supposed to become available on both platforms in early May. [Engadget]

I assume that since the article mentions "cable" that there will be absolutely no love for us DirecTv/Dish subscribers out there? That would be disappointing, but as I'm already receiving season 1 of the Wire from Netflix it's not the end of the world. I just wish they'd play nice with everyone... [edit] Ahh, the importance of research: just popped over to the HBO site, signed up with my DirecTV account and am currently watching Episode 1 of the Wire. As they are playing nice with DirecTv right now I suppose I no longer care that they play nice with everyone. God I love technology.
