APRIL 4, 2012 Sioux Falls, SD –Midcontinent Communications has announced the launch of HBO’s new authenticated online video destinations, HBO GO® and MAX GO®. For no additional cost, Midcontinent customers who subscribe to HBO and/or Cinemax will now have unlimited access to the corresponding new online services at any time, on any computer in the U.S. with a high-speed Internet connection, as well as iPad®, iPhone®, iPod touch®, select Android™ devices and platforms such as Samsung Smart TV™ and Roku®.
“This is a great opportunity for our customers who subscribe to HBO and Cinemax,” said Midcontinent President and CEO Pat McAdaragh. “We have received a lot of requests for access to these online programming services, and I am very pleased we have accomplished this through our relationship with HBO.”
HBO GO, which offers more than 1400 titles online, allows Midcontinent’s authenticated HBO customers to instantly watch every episode of every season of the best HBO shows including current series like: 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 as well as 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 new and exclusive, primetime high-impact drama series like Strike Back, specifically created for the channel.
With the online services, customers get most new titles simultaneously with their premiere on the networks; the ability to create a “Watchlist” that keeps track of bookmarked content for later viewing; bonus content including interviews, recaps, and behind-the-scenes extras; and customizable views showing titles in slideshow, grid or list format. In addition, HBO GO can be personalized through a “Series Pass®” capability which automatically alerts viewers to new episodes of favorite HBO programs when they arrive on the service.
HBO GO and MAX GO are the latest additions to HBO’s digital offerings and a perfect complement to HBO On Demand® and Cinemax On Demand® with even more viewing choices. On both services, most programming is available in high definition.
