. The new service enables users and Sky Cable subscribers to watch over 1000 hours of uncut award-winning HBO and Cinemax original content on computers, tablets and smartphones anytime, anywhere. This means that you can conveniently watch Game of Thrones, True Detective, Girls 12 hours after they premiere in the US.
Conversely, the said service opens HBO’s collection of original movies, concerts, documentaries and series, including complete seasons of all time favorites such as Sex and the City, Band of Brothers, The Pacific, The Sopranos and the Entourage. While subs are allowed to register up to 3 devices, the service wouldn’t allow users to simultaneous watch movies using all devices.
According to HBO Asia CEO, Jonathan Spink, who happened to be in the event, “HBO Go helps combat piracy and gives subscribers an opportunity to catch the newest episodes of their favorite HBO shows earlier.” This was later supported by SKYCable COO, Ray Montenola.
The HBO Go is free for SKYcable subscribers of the HBO PAK. Subscribers of the basic HBO channel on SKYCable can subscribe to HBO Go by adding PhP199/month to their monthly bill.
