HBO NOW Will Be Available to Cablevision’s Optimum Online Internet Customers

HBONow_iOS_1024Last week, HBO and Apple announced their partnership with the new service, HBO NOW. For the first time, you won’t have to have a cable subscription to get HBO, but if you are an internet subscriber to Cablevision’s Optimum Online, you can get it too. How this will be available is yet to be determined, but seems pretty obvious that it’ll work like HBO GO does now, and you’ll login with your Cablevision password. The price (which has yet to be determined, but will probably be $14.99/month) will likely be tacked onto your monthly internet bill.  Read More →

HBO Now Announced at Live Apple Event – To Launch in Early April

HBONow_iOS_1024

Home Box Office announced today the name of its standalone premium streaming service – HBO NOW– and that the service will launch this April, bringing the highly anticipated new product to audiences in time for the fifth season of Game of Thrones.  HBO and Apple also announced that for the first time an HBO subscription will be made available directly to Apple customers through HBO NOW.

I’m currently checking to see if multiple devices are able to be used at the same time. I’ll keep you posted! [UPDATED] 3 simultaneous streams! http://youtu.be/tQEhY_MJk9M

HBO NOW provides instant access to HBO’s acclaimed programming.  Watch every episode of every season of the best series programming, more of the biggest and latest Hollywood hit movies, original HBO Films, groundbreaking documentaries, sports and comedy and music specials.  To subscribe to the streaming service HBO NOW, consumers only need the internet.

Apple will give viewers the ability to enjoy HBO programming via HBO NOW. Upon launch, customers can subscribe using the HBO NOW app on their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, or directly on Apple TV for instant access. Users can purchase HBO NOW directly in-app for $14.99 a month. Upon registering, subscribers will also be able to watch at HBONOW.com.  HBO will offer a 30 day introductory free trial period to new HBO NOW customers who sign up through Apple in April.

HBO continues to be in discussions with its existing network of distributors and new digital partners to offer HBO NOW.  At launch, HBO NOW will be available on iOS devices and on PCs.

“HBO NOW is the next phase of innovation at HBO,” said Richard Plepler, chairman and CEO, HBO.  “With this new partnership, a natural evolution for the network, we have access to millions of Apple customers who are used to getting their favorite apps immediately.  Now, they can do the same with an HBO subscription.”

“HBO NOW offers a new generation of HBO fans many of the best TV programs in the world without a cable or satellite subscription,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. “Now, with the same simplicity as buying an app, customers can subscribe to HBO NOW and instantly start viewing their favorite HBO programs as they air – this is huge.”

Similar to HBO GO, HBO NOW will offer more than 2,000 titles online. This includes current critically acclaimed series like Game of Thrones®, True Detective®, Silicon Valley®, Girls®, Veep® and The Leftovers®, as well as classics like The Sopranos®, Sex and the City®, True Blood®, The Wire® and Deadwood®.

Highly-anticipated upcoming original programs like Westworld, the drama series starring Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris and Evan Rachel Wood; The Brink, the dark comedy series starring Jack Black and Tim Robbins; the new season of the Emmy®-winning True Detective with Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell and Rachel McAdams; and HBO Films’ Bessie, starring Queen Latifah, will become available on HBO NOW as they air on HBO.

In addition, HBO NOW will showcase Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, named “best of 2014” on many critics’ lists; VICE, the Emmy®-winning, cutting-edge news magazine series hosted by Shane Smith; HBO Sports documentaries, series and World Championship Boxing events; and groundbreaking documentary programming like Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst and the Oscar®-winning Citizenfour.
