HBO Go for Android and iOS updated with automated binge mode

Good news for HBO Go customers: It’s now easier than ever to binge watch your favorite shows on your Android- or iOS-powered smartphone or tablet, thanks to a recent update for the application on the App Store and Play Store.

Prior to the upgrade, when watching a program you’d need to manually select the next episode, but now it’ll play automatically — so you can breeze through an entire season of Game of Thrones without having to touch your handset.

Even with the addition of a continuous binge mode, HBO Go still lacks behind its premium counterpart, HBO Now, in terms of ease of use and functionality, but seeing as it’s free to those with a cable subscription, we’re not going to this gift horse in the mouth.

To install the update…

If you’d like to install the latest version of the application, open up the App Store/Play Store, navigate into the Updates section, select HBO Go, then hit the Update button.
