It's hard to call yourself a cable provider if HBO isn't in your lineup, and today Google has addressed that glaring hole in Google Fiber's channel listing. Subscribers in Kansas City (and eventually Austin) can now add a $20 HBO package to their monthly bill to fill their thirst for Game of Thrones and Girls. Aside from the core HBO channel, the bundle also includes HBO2, HBO Signature, HBO Family, HBO Latino, HBO Comedy, and HBO Zone. Cinemax is also arriving on Google Fiber today, with a similar package demanding a $10 premium on top of Google's cable bill. A $40 premium option nets you all the premium TV a human could want, with Starz and Showtime thrown in alongside the above channels.
