HBO Go Coming To Consoles, HBO Vaguely Says

The HBO Go app that lets people watch HBO shows from iPads and other things that aren't cable boxes is coming to unnamed game consoles, according to a Gigaom report of a recent Time Warner earnings call. The app has been specific to certain providers (blocked by Time Warner Cable in New York, for example), so we're a few details short of unbridled excitement. We're checking with MS/Sony/Nintendo on plans and reactions. [via Giant Bomb]

How is it blocked? Does the program just read your IP address, say, "This is a Time Warner IP", and refuse to play it for you?

This . . . kind of scares me. Could there be a day when I can't access Netflix because Time Warner wants me to buy their cable?
