    HBO Go is on Amazon's Fire TV now, Fire TV stick soon

    (engadget.com) - It only took seven or so months since it was first announced, but HBO Go is now available on Amazon's Fire TV (along with SlingPlayer). Owners of the Fire TV Stick dongle will have to wait until this spring for access, but since they're probably Amazon Prime subscribers too, at least they have plenty of older HBO shows to stream in the meantime.....

    I'm more excited about the inclusion of SlingPlayer. Sweet!

    HBO VOD works well on my HR44-700, so waiting for HBO GO on the fire stick is no real problem for me.
    What I'm looking for is an app that will play back movies I have stored on my PC's 2nd hard drive.
    I have a Logitech Revue with an app called ES File Explorer. The app has a built in player, and I can navigate to any file on my PC no matter which hard drive it's on. Would love to see an app that could do the same on the Fire TV stick.

    I was able to sideload ES File Explorer and BS Player on the Fire TV stick. Both work fine, play movies stored on my PC.
