No more HBO Go on Xbox 360

The HBO Go app on the Xbox 360 will go away Jan. 8. Too bad. There are other good options, but for me the spousal acceptance factor has been excellent on a device that can do WMC, Netflix, Amazon and HBO without the need to switch inputs.

Also, I'm not sure if this would work, but if you subscribed to HBO through amazon channels, could you watch through the 360 amazon app? Obviously this wouldnt help cable users, but could be worth a shot for some.

Thanks for heads up. I run Google Chromecast on all my TVs now as my older hardware becomes obsolete.

Thank you for posting this! I didn't know about the loss of the HBO app on XBOX 360 until last night. I spent a few frustrating moments trying to come up with a workaround on my own. Your suggestion to use the Amazon app worked perfectly. I got a free 7 day HBO trial too. I'm now all caught up on Season 8 GoT. :)

Glad to hear my idea helped out!
