Cable ONE, the tenth-largest cable MSO in the United States, has become the latest operator to allow its subscribers to sign in and watch content on HBO's dedicated TV Everywhere services, HBO GO and MAX GO. It also plans to soon launch its own TV Everywhere portal.
Cable ONE customers who subscribe to HBO and/or Cinemax will now have free, unlimited access to the streaming services via any computer in the U.S., as well as iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Android smartphones. HBO GO also supports Kindle Fire, 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, in a statement. "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 access to the entirety of the HBO library and current seasons, including 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 along with 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 original drama series like Strike Back.
Cable ONE's HBO and Cinemax subscribers can go to HBOGO.com and MAXGO.com or download the HBO GO and MAX GO device-specific apps, then sign in with a Cable ONE user ID and password, make a viewing selection and begin watching.
