"HBO Go" Doubles Up Streaming Content Catalog

Paul Lilly

Time Warner, parent company of Home Box Office (HBO), announced the expansion of its authenticated online video streaming service, HBO Go, to more than 1,400 movies and TV shows. The expanded content essentially doubles HBO Go's catalog, which now includes every episode of The Sopranos, Sex and the City, and Deadwood, as well as current shows like Boardwalk Empire, Entourage, and True Blood.

"HBO Go is the most robust collection of high quality, exclusive online content," said Eric Kessler, co-President, HBO. "The combination of HBO's linear channels, HBO On Demand, and now the expanded HBO Go gives our subscribers an unmatched value proposition."

HBO Go offers certain HBO subscribers instant access to streaming content at no additional charge. These can be watched on either a PC or Mac via a browser based application. Unfortunately, it's not available to users who subscribe to HBO through DirecTV, and instead is limited to Comcast Infinity TV, Verizon FiOS, Cox Advanced TV, and AT&T U-Verse customers. That's too bad because this has the potential to be awesome, and the Sopranos catalog alone is worth the price of admission.
