HBO is expanding its library for subscribers who view the pay cabler’s content over the Internet.
Authenticated users who engage in the net’s HBO Go program will have access to more than 1,400 HBO titles, an increase from 600 titles that were previously available. At no extra cost to the viewer, HBO Go is available to users of Comcast XFINITY TV, Verizon FiOS, Cox Advanced TV and AT&T U-Verse customers who subscribe to HBO. Time Warner Cable, the nation’s second-largest cable service, has not yet signed on.
Content available includes HBO series, movies, docs, specials and other programming owned by the network. Skeins range from 1997 prison drama “Oz” to current hit “Boardwalk Empire.”
“HBO Go is the most robust collection of high-quality, exclusive online content,” said co-president Eric Kessler. “The combination of HBO’s linear channels, HBO On Demand and now the expanded HBO Go gives our subscribers an unmatched value proposition.”
Subscribers can utilize HBO Go through any computer with a broadband connection. Net is looking to make it available on iPad and other tablet devices in the near future.
