SALT LAKE CITY — An update to the Xbox 360 dashboard back in December teased at the inclusion of select premium television services. The listed services included YouTube, Hulu Plus, and MLB.TV, among others.

A conference in San Francisco earlier this week confirmed that one of the remaining promised services, HBO Go, will be appearing on the console on April 1.

HBO Go, the on-the-go version of the premium subscription service, has been trickling into various hardware platforms since its inception, including select Samsung Smart TVs.

HBO Go requires a subscription to HBO through your cable company in order to gain access. In addition, an Xbox Live Gold membership is required to access the content on the console.

There were no announcements made to release the app on the Playstation 3 or Nintendo Wii.

Currently, the HBO lineup is fairly strong, containing the likes of "Game of Thrones" and "True Blood." The April 1 release date will run alongside the debut of "Game of Thrones," season two.
