Just a quick PSA for Xbox 360 owners: You can now watch The Wire on your console, and you don't even need the DVD boxed set.
Today marks the launch of the HBO Go app on the system, allowing Xbox Live Gold members to watch pretty much the entire breadth of the premium cable network's original programming (sans a few old favorites like Dream On, The Larry Sanders Show, and Mr. Show), as well as the vast majority of its original sports programming and current movie lineup. The one trick, of course, is that you have to already have an HBO subscription through your local cable network in order to use the app, though that's true of the HBO Go service for all devices.
If old episodes of Eastbound & Down and Real Sports aren't your thing, maybe actual, honest-to-god baseball is. Also launching today is the MLB.TV app, which allows subscribers to the MLB.TV service to access any baseball game currently airing anywhere, ensuring that Houston Astros fans can continue to watch their team flounder helplessly night after night, and never miss a single mediocre moment. Once again, you must already have an MLB.TV account, and must have Xbox Live Gold in order to use it.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm currently waist deep in the last season of Cathouse. I mean Deadwood. Okay, no, I actually mean Cathouse. Don't you dare judge me.
