October 9, 2012 – Phoenix,AZ — Cable ONE today announced the launch of HBO’s new authenticated streaming video destinations, HBO GO® and MAX GO®. Cable ONE customers who subscribe to HBO and/or Cinemax will now have free, unlimited access to the corresponding new streaming services at any time, on any computer in the U.S. with a high-speed Internet connection as well as iPad®, iPhone®, iPod touch® and select Android® smartphones. With HBO GO, subscribers can enjoy even more ways to watch on Kindle Fire and platforms such as Xbox 360®, Samsung Smart TVs™ and Roku®.
“We could not be more excited about the launch of HBO GO and MAX GO with Cable ONE,” said David Burzynski, Director of Digital Media with Cable ONE. “Cable ONE customers have been asking us for these exciting products and with HBO’s superior programming and the upcoming launch of Cable ONE’s TV Everywhere portal, the timing was perfect.”
HBO GO, which offers more than 1400 titles, allows Cable ONE’s authenticated HBO customers to instantly watch every episode of every season of the best HBO shows including current series like Game of Thrones®, True Blood®, and Boardwalk Empire®, classics like The Sopranos®, Sex and the City® and Deadwood®, plus HBO original films, miniseries, sports, documentaries, and specials as well as a wide selection of blockbuster theatricals.
HBO’s sister service, MAX GO, adds more than 400 titles of Cinemax programming online, providing instant access to hundreds of Hollywood hit movies, indies, cult favorites, the MAX After Dark series as well as new and exclusive, primetime high-impact drama series like Strike Back℠, specifically created for the channel.
With the streaming services, Cable ONE customers get most new titles simultaneously with their premiere on the networks; the ability to create a “Watchlist” that keeps track of bookmarked content for later viewing; bonus content including interviews, recaps, and behind-the-scenes extras; and customizable views showing titles in slideshow, grid, or list format. In addition, HBO GO can be personalized through a “Series Pass®” capability which automatically alerts viewers to new episodes of favorite HBO programs when they arrive on the service. Note: Cable One currently does not have HBO on Demand or Cinemax on Demand.
To access these services, Cable ONE’s HBO and Cinemax subscribers can go to HBOGO.com and MAXGO.com or download the HBO GO and MAX GO apps. Subscribers can then sign in with their Cable ONE user ID and password, make their viewing selection and begin watching. ###
