If you’ve been enjoying HBO content on your 2nd or 3rd generation Apple TV while stuck under quarantine — your days of using HBO GO are numbered.
According to HBO GO support, HBO will discontinue streaming to all 2nd and 3rd generation Apple TVs beginning April 30, 2020.
In an effort to provide the best streaming experience, we made some changes to the device requirements needed to stream #HBOGO. Starting April 30, 2020, HBO GO will no longer be available on Apple TV (2nd or 3rd generation). Thank you.

Considering most people are at home and will be for quite some time with limited entertainment options, discontinuing the service for those devices during a pandemic doesn’t seem like the best option.
