HBO Go is the new streaming app from HBO for the iPad and iPhone. As you may have guessed, it streams HBO TV shows – over 1,400 of them – to your iDevices. The app is free with an HBO subscription at participating television providers.
Content offered in the app includes HBO original shows, movies, sports, and comedy programming. For hit shows like True Blood, The Sopranos, Entourage, The Wire, Boardwalk Empire every episode is available to be streamed.
The app is touted as HBO Anywhere and can be used on the go as long as you have minimum a 3G connection.
I’ve never been an HBO subscriber, but I’ve definitely enjoyed a lot of the HBO shows when they make their way to basic cable channels – so I imagine this app should be quite popular with HBO subscribers.
Here’s an App Store link for HBO Go; it’s a free app and also a universal app, designed for both iPad and iPhone.
