Having put up with a long waiting period, PlayStation 3 owners in the US will finally be able to stream HBO shows on their consoles.

According to an announcement on the official PlayStation Blog, the platform is getting its very own HBO Go app starting today

The app, which lets cable customers with HBO subscriptions watch the premium channel’s catalogue on demand, first arrived on the Xbox 360  nearly two years ago.

The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 both don’t have access to the popular app, but Phil Rosenberg, an executive at Sony Computer Entertainment America, said today that the company is “working diligently with HBO to bring the HBO GO app to PS4.” For its part, Microsoft plans to deliver the app to Xbox One  sometime this year.

With a selection of great HBO shows currently airing – including True Detective and Girls – TV addicts will still want to give the app a go (ahem!), despite its late arrival.
