The day has finally come. You can now watch Game of Thrones without stealing your dad’s HBO Go password or stealing it online.
At the Apple event on Monday, HBO CEO Richard Plepler announced a new service called HBO NOW will let viewers watch the network’s programming on various Apple devices – including Apple TV – without purchasing a cable subscription.
It launches in April, just in time for the fifth season of “Game of Thrones,” as the company points out in their press release.
Anyone can download the HBO Now app to their phone and purchase the subscription for $14.99 per month. The service is premiering “exclusively” on Apple TV, iPhone and iPad, but the shows can also be viewed on your computer once you have registered at HBONOW.com, according to the announcement.
HBO is also offering a 30-day free trial to people who sign up through Apple, and the price of Apple TV was reduced to $65.
