HBO Go makes its Android tablet debut on the Kindle Fire
HBO Go has been available for Android and iOS phones for over a year now. On the Android side of things it was even privy to an Ice Cream Sandwich update, yet the tablet scene remained dry.

While HBO Go still hasn’t been unleashed to the entire Android tablet world, it has taken its first steps forward by making its debut on the Kindle Fire. Starting today HBO Go is available for free from Amazon’s Appstore. Eligible HBO subscribers can now access over 1,400 HBO titles on their tablet.

"We are thrilled to offer HBO GO to the growing community of millions of Kindle Fire owners," said Aaron Rubenson, Director of the Amazon Appstore. "The HBO GO app will offer instant access to HBO's incredible lineup of shows. Kindle Fire owners already download and use apps and games frequently on their devices, and we expect that only to increase with the addition of HBO GO and all of its popular content."

This was great news! Ever since I bought the Fire I have been disappointed about the apps that I can’t get and no access to Android Market. I say “was” because unfortunately after spending an hour on the phone with my cable provider and 30min on the phone with Amazon we found out why I couldn’t log in to HBO Go on my tablet. … TIME WARNER CABLE has not contracted with HBO Go to have this feature with the tablet app… F**K TIME WARNER THEY ARE THE ABSOLUTE WORST CABLE PROVIDER IN THE US. IF THERE IS ANYOTHER OPTION I HIGHLY SUGGEST TAKING IT… I HAVE HATED TWC FOR YEARS, CUSTOMER SERVICE IS AWFULL AND RUDE. Called Uverse today and found out they are coming to my area in a couple of months. Cant wait.

@roneill, good luck to you with u-verse. I did support for them and I can tell you that they are just like all the rest of them. On another note, I too am hurting from the lack of hbogo due to timewarner. From my googling it appears they will most likely be added in the near future, but there is no hard evidence.
