HBO Now Launches on all Apple Devices and CableVision

HBO's standalone streaming service, HBO Now, just launched exclusively today through Apple and CableVision's Optimum service. Subscribers can get a free 7-day trial when they sign up through an Apple device and then pay a monthly fee of $14.99 to get access to HBO's extensive catalogue of original shows and featured movies. Currently, Apple has an exclusive hold on all smartphone and tablet apps, but Android users should check back in when Apple's exclusivity expires in three months. The service launch comes just a few days before the season five premiere of Game of Thrones, which begins April 12. Happy binge-watching!
