I wish I could tell you that HBO Go was now available al carte (i.e. no cable subscription required). But alas, that is not the case. I can, however, tell you that you can now purchase select HBO shows in the Google Play store.
Starting today you can buy a season pass or individual episodes of Game of Thrones, True Blood, Newsroom, Girls, Boardwalk Empire, Veep, and the Wire. A full season pass will set you back $29-35, where as individual episodes start at $2.99.
On another note, Hulu Plus is now also compatible with Google’s Chromecast. You know, just in case you were looking for another way to fill the void in your TV watching life.
