HBO Go launches in Colombia

MUMBAI: HBO Latin America has announced that their new entertainment platform, HBO Go, will be available in Colombia for MiDirecTV clients.

Through the platform, HBO/Max subscribers will be able to log in and watch films, series, shows and special programs from HBO online on their computers.

HBO Latin America Group president Emilio Rubio said,"Following the success in Brazil where, only weeks after its launch, HBO Go reached record numbers for access and streaming, we now launch in Colombia, giving our subscribers the opportunity to enjoy their favorite programs anytime, anyplace. We are very proud to bring a product to Latin America that further enhances the HBO Premium entertainment experience in the region".

HBO Go will have many features to personalise the available services, including the ability to receive alerts and notifications, through Series Pass, when new episodes are available. It will also be possible to create watchlists with favorite programs and to view them in HD, with or without subtitles. The platform has a simple and intuitive navigation, and the content is divided into Series, Movies, Documentaries, Specials, Children and Adults.

In Series, for example, subscribers can find the most recent episodes of the third season of Boardwalk Empire, as well as complete seasons of True Blood and Game of Thrones. In addition to the latest series, customers will be able to view all seasons of The Sopranos, Rome and series produced in Latin America such as Mandrake, Capadocia and Prófugos. Exclusive content distributed in the region by HBO such as Mad Men, Preamar and House of Lies will also be available on HBO GO.

In movies, there are HBO films such as Game Change, Hemingway & Gellhorn and Too Big to Fail, as well as blockbusters that fit right in with the programming found on HBO‘s channels.

HBO Go is currently available for all subscribers who have HBO/Max packages with MiDIRECTV. In the future, it will be available with other pay TV operators that are currently working to integrate the service, which works with an authentication system in conjunction with the operator.

HBO GO can be accessed throughout Colombia by computers with a broadband Internet connection. It will soon be available for tablets and mobile devices.
