Amazon has announced that HBO GO will now be streaming to Amazon Fire TV customers. Customers with HBO's subscription can now bring that experience to the Fire TV set-top box starting today and Amazon's more affordably priced Fire TV Stick will also gain HBO GO streaming capabilities in spring.
Since launch, Amazon Fire TV has more than quadrupled its selection, with over 700 apps and games now available. With the addition of HBO GO, Fire TV customers now have access to over 1,700 titles including every episode of new and classic HBO series, as well as HBO original films, miniseries, sports, documentaries, specials and a wide selection of blockbuster movies.
And Amazon is celebrating the launch of HBO GO on Fire TV by offering a special discount on the set-top box. Fire TV is now priced at $79 through Amazon's promotion, which lasts through December 28.
Amazon has revealed its Ring drone camera, the Ring Always Home Camera, and it looks like quite an interesting affair. If you have any thoughts of owning one, though, you'll need to sign up for an invite right now, as the invite list that opened up today will fill up quickly!
If you've been having trouble with Wi-Fi on your streaming stick, an Ethernet adapter may be a good investment. A wired connection avoids signal interference or bandwidth competition and gives your cast or stream priority access to data. Some adapters do just that, while others take advantage of the direct access to your Chromecast or Fire TV Stick to add other useful features.
