HBO Go gets clearance for Comcast owners at last

Comcast sent word Friday of plans that confirmed rumors of imminent HBO Go on Xbox 360 support. Gamers would get access to the premium cable channel's on-demand shows in streaming form "early next week." The sign-in for HBO Go will be the same as for the already-active Xfinity TV.

No mention was made of being exempted from bandwidth usage caps, as with Xfinity TV. Customers have to have a qualifying cable TV package to get access to the Xbox version, whose sign-in is also valid on iOS and Android.

The TV provider, along with Time Warner Cable, was one of the few left out of initial HBO Go support in the US. Reasons for the gap were never outlined, although the short interval suggests that there were few major issues. Cable providers don't consider HBO Go a threat to legacy TV as it's only ever offered to existing providers as a bonus to keep subscribers watching.

Time Warner Cable hasn't yet discussed any plans of its own.
