It costs $ 15 a month and you can watch HBO via the HBO-Now app or in a browser on HBONow.com. The HBO Now app is available on a range of devices, including mobile devices, smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV and Roku. As with HBO Go, you can stream live on the new episodes on Sunday night, just as they air on HBO.
