HBO Launches Apps for Daydream View

HBO is entering the world of VR with apps for HBO Now and HBO Go that run on Daydream View, Google’s new virtual reality headset that’s compatible with certain Android-powered smartphones such as the new Pixel and Moto Z and Moto Z Force.

HBO’s apps – for its standalone OTT service and TV Everywhere offering – lets authenticated users watch original series such as Game of Thrones and Westworld on a 2D screen rendered in a 360-degree, digitally-rendered environment.

HBO’s new apps were among several new offerings that are being launched, or will be soon (Netflix, for example), for Daydream View, the $79 headset that became available last month.
