The service will be effective in time for the season launches of “Game of Thrones” and “Veep” on April 12th, that said Apple TV and Apple device users will be privileged to watch the series earlier. HBO Now is available from $14.99 per month and Apple also announced that it has now lowered the price of Apple TV from $99 to $69.
What about other devices? Roku, Chromecast, Android, consoles etc. just need to wait until the service will be active from the month of July. However, PCs will also have access to the service along with all of Apple’s iOS devices.
