I Want my HBO ... on my Blu Ray

I subscribe to HBO. Why the heck can't I get it on my Blu-Ray? Is there some other way to get it on my TV (besides going to the actual channel)?

The Mr. and I are wanting to recapture the magic of Boardwalk Empire from the beginning. We have a subscription to HBO. Our cable provider (Charter) offers HBO on Demand and HBO Go. The 1st season of BE is not available on demand so we're looking to HBO GO (which does have it). The problem is getting it to work on our Blu Ray player.
We have a Sony Bravia BDP-S570/BM U2 Blu Ray player. It has Netflix, Hulu and Amazon. It does not have HBO GO. From what I've read, it's not possible to download apps onto the Blu Ray because Sony doesn't let you do that. So, is there another work around here? I can get HBO Go on my computer, but we want to watch it in all of its gorey glory on our big TV (a 2004 Pioneer Elite).
As for other options: we have Netflix streaming but it doesn't offer BE. We aren't interested in switching to DVDs because hey, we're already paying for HBO. Amazon has it online but we'd have to pay $35 for the entire season. My goal here is to take advantage of the HBO stuff that I'm already paying for.
