HBO Go for Android

It took a long time for HBO to let customers shift programming from a smartphone onto their TV. But good things come in spades, and after finally enabling AirPlay for its HBO Go iOS app last week, the company has enabled HDMI video output for compatible Android devices. With options like Miracast still in their infancy, Google's OS lacks a unified, secure, and widespread mirroring technology of its own, so HBO opted to give users a physical solution. Now you'll be able to tether your Android smartphone or tablet directly to your HDTV and watch the network's premium content on the big screen. The same luxury has also been extended to MAX Go. Both apps are available as free downloads from Google Play.
