Apple is currently holding a press conference to officially unveil the Apple Watch (and how many limbs it’ll cost you to buy), but there was an HBO surprise during it.
For a long time HBO has been rumored to be working on a standalone version of the service for cord-cutters. This “HBO Now” service is official, and it’ll debut exclusively on Apple TV, iPhone, and iPad for $15 a month. It’ll obviously move to other devices in time, but this exclusivity sucks for those who wanted HBO without cable.
As part of the announcement, HBO revealed an awesome new trailer for Season 5 of Game of Thrones and they’ve posted it on their Facebook page (it’s also up on Apple TV as well)
