HBO Go app for Android, iOS launches early

The teased HBO Go app that will allow for streaming cable TV content to portable devices has now gone live, and ahead of its initially promised May 2 launch date. The respective apps are now available for iOS devices (free, App Store) and Android (Android Market). Users need to be subscribers to cable or satellite service with an HBO Go deal, however.

The apps promise to bring unlimited and instant access to content that includes any of the 1,400 episodes of any TV show, sports, movies and more on HBO.

The early and limited user reviews available on the respective application stores are mixed. Android users seem to be slightly more disappointed, wishing for better quality and provider and hardware support. The admittedly fewer iPhone users praise it for quality and access.
