I wonder what is the difference between HBO Go and HBO Now given that the content will be the same and none will include a live stream of the channel? Only VOD content. I know the difference is that I can subscribe to HBO Now without needing a cable package but as far as content....the same.
"What you won’t be watching: Anything live. HBO Now is a pure on-demand service, and won’t carry a live feed of HBO’s cable programming. That also means you won’t be able to tune in live to any of HBO’s boxing games." (Quote from Gigaom on the subject).
Given that it won't be available to Roku for the first three months, I guess you can pay Amazon or Vudu for access to the new episodes of Game of Thrones if you can't wait and got to have it. No need to lose sleep over this if you're a GoT/Roku user.
