Announced at Apple’s Spring Forward event last month, HBO NOW standalone streaming service is now available exclusively on Apple TV. HBO NOW doesn’t require a cable subscription and costs $14.99 per month. If you sign up in April (no long-term commitment required) you’ll get a 30 day free trial.

HBO NOW is also available on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch via a free HBO NOW app.

You can subscribe using your iTunes account directly on your Apple TV or on any other iOS device.

Upon registering and getting your login credentials, you will be able to also watch your favorite HBO programming on via Mac or PC.

HBO NOW is only accessible in the U.S. (check out our tutorial on how to access U.S.-only services on Apple TV outside the U.S.).


Similar to HBO GO, HBO NOW will offer more than 2,000 titles online. This includes current critically acclaimed series like Game of Thrones , True Detective, Silicon Valley, Girls, Veep, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and The Leftovers, as well as classics like The Sopranos, Sex and the City, True Blood, The Wire and Deadwood.

In addition, HBO NOW subscribers will have instant access to more Hollywood hits like Divergent, X-MEN: Days of Future Past, Neighbors, Godzilla and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
