HBO, Verizon introduce Max Go for Fios TV customers

MUMBAI: US telecom service provider Verizon and HBO have announced that Verizon‘s FiOS TV customers are the first to gain access to, Cinemax‘s online video destination featuring more than 700 hours of Cinemax programming monthly.

Similar to HBO Go, which launched with Fios in February of this year, Max Go offers free, unlimited online access to Cinemax programming at any time, from any US location with a broadband connection.
HBO senior VP domestic network distribution Shelley Brindle says, "With the addition of Max Go, Verizon Fios subscribers will be the first to enjoy the full suite of Cinemax offerings. Whether watching the linear channels, searching Cinemax on Demand or now clicking through Max Go, the programming is available the way the consumer desires to access it".

Verizon VP of consumer strategy and planning Shawn Strickland said, "Verizon‘s Fios customers are getting even more value from their Cinemax subscription with Max Go, which allows them to access programming at any time, from any location. We‘re excited for Max Go to join HBO Go and our growing content offering, further enhancing the TV and Internet experience that only Fios delivers." 
With Max Go, Fios customers who subscribe to Cinemax can instantly watch the biggest Hollywood hits, indies, cult favourites and Max After Dark series - all in HD – online from a PC or Mac computer. Users are able to customize their experience through multiple browsing and viewing options, and can restrict content with easy to use parental controls.
Like HBO Go, Max Go also gives subscribers the ability to create a Watchlist that keeps track of bookmarked content for later viewing. In addition, users will find extra content including interviews, recaps, and behind-the-scenes pieces; customizable views showing titles in slideshow, grid or list format; and Browse by Tags, a new feature allowing users to find titles via keywords.

Max Go is the latest in the suite of Cinemax products offered by Verizon FiOS TV, including nine SD channels and seven in HD, Cinemax On Demand and Cinemax On Demand in HD.
Max Go joins Verizon Fios TV‘s growing online video offerings as well as a broad collection of programming that includes more than 580 all-digital channels with up to 140 HD channels and 18,000 monthly video-on-demand titles. Fios also provides next-generation interactive services including an advanced interactive media guide; social networking, news and entertainment widgets; and remote DVR management via broadband or cell phone.
