Following the release of HBO’s new HBO Now app for its $14.99/month standalone streaming service, today the company updated its main HBO GO app with a similar, long-awaited redesign.

Here’s what HBO GO looked like prior to today’s update (left) next to the new design (right):

And here’s a look at the new design on iPad:

You’ll notice the design takes a lot after the new HBO Now app released exclusively on Apple devices in April.

Unlike HBO’s new HBO Now app that gives iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV users access to the network’s shows for $14.99/month, HBO GO is for subscribers through cable companies and requires authentication of a TV provider account.

The updated HBO GO app, version 3.0.0, is available on the App Store now.

What’s New in Version 3.0.0
