HBO Go app coming to Xbox Live April 1

If you happen to have cable, HBO and an Xbox Live subscription, your Xbox 360 will get somewhat more useful come April 1. HBO co-president Eric Kessler has confirmed that HBO Go, the premium network's streaming service, will arrive on Xbox 360s just in time for April Fools' Day -- okay, and the premiere of Game of Thrones season two -- according to our cohorts at Engadget.

HBO Go goes a step beyond cable on demand services, offering, movies, special features and every episode of nearly every HBO series. Of course, we'll have to see the Xbox Live app in action before we know how many features actually make it to the console. Here's hoping we can finally see what Deadwood was all about.
