Apple and HBO shocked us all when they started off their livestream event by announcing the HBO Now streaming service as an exclusive for Apple TV. It will be available in early April for $14.99.
If you sign up for a subscription early enough, you will be able to watch Game of Thrones' opening season 5. Also, for those who sign up before April 12th, you will get one month for free.
This might not be the greatest news for folks who are not fans of Apple, but at least it's a way for us to get the HBO Now service. Perhaps the service being exclusive to the Apple TV is only a timed exclusive and the HBO Now service will come to other devices in the future.
Alternatively, even though it is an Apple TV exclusive, you will also be able to watch HBO Now on the internet through a PC at HBONow.com website (once it goes live in April. The other good news is that the Apple TV's price is dropping to just $69.99.
