HBO expands its online video destination

MUMBAI: US broadcaster HBO has announced that it has expanded its authenticated online video destination, HBO Go, bringing more than 1400 titles to HBO subscribers.

With the new content model, HBO Go now gives online viewers immediate access to virtually all of HBO’s programming inventory.
HBO subscribers can instantly watch every episode of classics like The Sopranos, Sex and the City and Deadwood and current award–winning series like Boardwalk Empire, Entourage and True Blood as well as blockbuster theatricals – where they want and when they want.

HBO co–president Eric Kessler said, "HBO Go is the most robust collection of high quality, exclusive online content. The combination of HBO’s linear channels, HBO On Demand and now the expanded HBO GO gives our subscribers an unmatched value proposition."

HBO Go is the latest addition to its digital offerings and complements HBO On Demand, with even more viewing choices. HBO GO offers HBO’s acclaimed original series, HBO Films, HBO Miniseries, HBO Documentary Films, HBO Sports, comedies, late night programming and the largest selection of recent blockbuster movies in both standard and high definition. 
With content updated continuously, HBO GO allows consumers to instantly watch their favourite programmes from a PC or MAC computer via a browser–based application. In addition, the service includes exclusive and bonus materials, soundtrack and cast information.

HBO Go can be accessed from any US location with a broadband connection. Subscribers can personalize HBO GO through the "Series Pass" capability, which automatically alerts viewers to new episodes of preferred programmes when they arrive on the service. When browsing, subscribers can also bookmark content for later viewing by adding it to their "Watchlist" or restrict content with easy to use parental controls.

The expanded model is now available, at no extra cost, to Comcast XFinity TV, Verizon Fios, Cox Advanced TV and AT&T U–Verse customers who subscribe to HBO.
