Here's some news that will be more interesting in a few weeks once more devices are in the market with Android 5.0. The HBO Go app has been updated to support Android 5.0 Lollipop. Of course, that's not all the update does. It also includes support for higher resolution playback. This makes sense considering many of the newest generation of devices are starting to come with 2650x1440 resolution. Here's a quick summary of what this app can do:
