True Blood, The Sopranos And Other HBO Shows Headed To Amazon Prime, HBO Go Coming To Fire TV
HBO series are coming to Amazon Prime. This sounds like a pretty big get for Amazon, especially considering HBO hasn't regularly made their series available through streaming video services outside of their own HBO Go. The multiyear deal will not only include a number of popular previously-aired series, but also eventually some of HBO's current series, Girls and The Newsroom included.
Family TV Time Gets Really Awkward In Hilarious HBO Go Promos
You know that uncomfortable moment when your Dad walks into the room while you're watching one of the most awkward sex scenes of HBO's Girls, and uses it as an opportunity to talk to you about your right to speak up because it's "your body"? Ok, maybe that never happens to you, but the scenario sure is funny and HBO's not above using it to promote HBO Go.

HBO Go Now Compatible Directly Through Apple TV
Every time HBO Go becomes compatible with a new device, the streaming video feature gets that much more valuable. And it also adds value to the device. In this case, it's Apple TV.

Time Warner Probably Won't Offer HBO Go Separate From Cable Anytime Soon
Why can't HBO Go be like Netflix and let customers subscribe to it without having to get a full cable package? At present, U.S. residents need a basic cable package in order to subscribe to HBO, which is how you get access to HBO Go. On content, HBO Go is similar to Netflix, in that it offers a bevy of movies and TV shows, which can be accessed online or through an HBO Go app. Of course, in the case of HBO Go, the TV series offered are all HBO series, but between past and current HBO shows, the premium cable channel has no shortage of those.
HBO Go Can Now Be Streamed Through Apple TV Using AirPlay
HBO's streaming video feature HBO Go is so packed with TV shows, films and other HBO content that it's practically worth the cost of the monthly subscription on its own. Of course, watching the On Demand content isn't quite as simple as turning on your television… yet. HBO appears to be working on that, however. They previously made HBO Go available through the Xbox, for those HBO subscribers who also have an Xbox Gold subscription. Of course, the cost adds up there.

True Blood Season 5 Bonus Content Available Through HBO Go This Sunday
In addition to hours and hours of HBO original series (previously aired and current shows), HBO Go also offers movies and other specials. Those features alone make HBO Go a must-have app for HBO subscribers. But HBO has taken it a step further by creating second-screen experiences for their programming. They did it for Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones, and they'll be doing it for True Blood, which returns for Season 5 this Sunday night.
HBO Go Now Available Through Kindle Fire
I like to think of HBO Go as the Netflix of HBO. Bursting with content, the streaming video feature certainly helps justify the monthly subscription fee for HBO, especially when factoring in the already-pricy cost of cable these days. HBO continues to expand on its availability, not only with regards to the cable/satellite using HBO subscribers who can access it, but also with regards to the compatible devices. Today's good news is that Kindle Fire users will now be able to access HBO go from their tablets.
HBO Go's Game Of Thrones Interactive Viewing Experience Available For iPad
Second screen apps and interactive features seem to be a growing trend for DVDs.

New Game Of Thrones Season 2 Trailer Coming Soon To HBO Go
It is no longer with bitter resentment and jealousy that I share a bit of news regarding HBO Go.

In this case, War is Coming... to HBO Go in the form of a new Game of Thrones Season 2 trailer.

HBO Go To Be Available To Cablevision Subscribers Soon
While not a certainty, it seemed a likelihood that once Time Warner Cable and HBO struck a deal to make HBO Go available to TWC subscribers, it wouldn’t be long before Cablevision followed suit. Fortunately for those Cablevision subscribers who have HBO, that’s proven to be the case.
