Last weeks update for the popular HBO GO and MAX GO Android applications introduced compatibility with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich devices. Well, at least some of them as the update failed to introduce one highly sought after feature of the GO apps — tablet compatibility. The boys at Android Community reached out to HBO and received a statement confirming an Android tablet version is coming very shortly.
HBO GO is now supported on Android phones running up to version 4.04 (Ice Cream Sandwich). We are actively working on a version of the application that will be optimized for most Android tablets, including Kindle Fire. Please stay tuned as a new version of the application with support for tablets is coming early this summer.
It’s a brief statement, but it tells us all we want to know and we can’t wait for a time when streaming every episode of Entourage is available on every tablet we have in the house. In the meantime, I suggest picking up either app up for your smartphone as the back catalogue of episodes and movies is sure to keep you entertained.
