HBO won't pull streaming support for older Apple TVs just yet
Engadget reports that HBO Now will still available on 2nd and 3rd generation Apple TVs until May 15, while HBO Go will continue to be accessible on the same devices for “a few additional months.”
It's a great decision that comes to help people who are isolating due to coronavirus pandemic. One other thing HBO took into consideration is the fact that people owning older generation Apple TVs might not be able to upgrade to new models during the outbreak.
Although HBO decided to pull its apps from the older Apple TVs months ago because of the “device deprecation,” the company is now reversing that decision temporarily, so if you own a 2nd or 3rd generation Apple TV, you should consider upgrading to a new one as soon as you can if you still want to be able to use HBO's apps.
