Ever since HBO announced last spring its cable-free streaming service, HBO Now, cord-cutters around the world have been waiting for it to launch on their preferred platform.
Well, they'll be glad to hear it's finally now live for Roku devices.
Roku said HBO's standalone subscription service is available for all current-generation players and sticks. HBO Now allows you to subscribe to HBO without a cable subscription, and it costs just $14.99 a month. With it, you get a live feed of HBO as well as on-demand content. You can check out our review of the iPhone and Apple TV apps here.
Keep in mind Roku is one of the last major platforms to get HBO Now. Since launching on Apple's devices earlier this year, it has expanded to Android and Amazon Fire TV, though it still has to come to Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
Here's the direct link to the channel in the Roku Store. Just make sure you download HBO Now and not HBO Go - which is the premium cable channel's original streaming service that requires a cable subscription.
