Report: Nintendo Bringing HBO Go To Wii U

Posted By | On 03rd, Jun. 2012

Remember when Nintendo said they were planning on making the Wii U a media box?

Nintendo Everything dug up a Time Warner job listing that talks about an HBO/MAX Go app for a variety of devices, including Nintendo devices. They speculate that HBO Go will initially probably be restricted to Wii U, but that it will make its way to the 3DS sometime later.

In any case, here is the relevant portion of the job listing:

“The Partner Manager position is responsible for the day-to-day relationship and ongoing marketing activities with several key Mobile, Tablet, Connected TV and Game Console digital partners for HBO GO and MAX GO. Partners include Apple, Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, Samsung, Roku, as well as any new partners that will launch HBO/MAX GO in the future.”

Considering that the Wii U is already supposed to be getting Netflix, Youtube, Hulu Plus, and an eBook reader, and now this, it looks like Nintendo might actually be making good on its promise this time. We’ll see though.
