As expected, you can now watch HBO content on your Apple TV, though you’ll need an iOS device to do so. HBO reached out to confirm that, during the All Things D: Dive Into Media conference today, Erik Kessler, President and COO of HBO, confirmed that AirPlay support has been enabled in the iOS HBO GO app, allowing users to watch content like Game of Thrones and True Blood.

It’s unclear if an HBO GO will ever arrive on the Apple TV as a standalone app, but this option is certainly the next best thing for iOS users. Of course, the very best thing would be an a la carte HBO subscription, but that’s unlikely to happen anytime soon, if ever.
