HBO Go, HBO’s mobile-TV application, launched early last year, but Time Warner Cable customers have been without it since. That’s set to change, however, as Time Warner announced today that the two companies have finally reached an agreement, and HBO Go and MAX Go will be offered to Time Warner customers starting as soon as next month.
The service, which allows internet-connected users to watch HBO’s library of over 1,400 old and current programs and 400 of Cinemax’s programs, is expected to kick off first with a limited beta test before it’s launched for all. In addition to playback on computers, the service will be available on multiple platforms, including iOS and Android mobile devices.
“We’re very pleased to have completed an agreement that’s good for our customers,” said Susan Weinstein, Group Vice President, Content Acquisition for Time Warner Cable. “HBO and Cinemax offer unique and compelling programming for our customers, and soon they’ll be able to access it both anytime and anywhere.”
Time Warner didn’t provide a timeline on when users can expect the limited beta to begin, nor did they say who will have access to the beta. Regardless, I’m sure Time Warner customers can wait one more month after having to wait over a year.
