This news is slightly off topic, but we know how many of you are fans of HBO Go so we wanted to share this news.
Oh happy day! That's what many of us will be singing at some point in April 2015 if HBO can stick to their recently announced schedule. That's when HBO plans to launch their stand-alone streaming service. Their intention is for the launch of the service to coincide with the 5th season of their monster smash hit series, Game of Thrones.
They announced their plan to dump the in-house streaming platform project called "Maui" that they are working on. They will instead license MLB Advanced's streaming technology. As a sidenote, HBO Go in its current form might be axed in favor of this new service. There are even reports of executive squabbling regarding these major shifts in HBO's business model. You can read HBO's statement in the thread, and more on the internal drama at the source link below.
