Cable One is now offering customers who subscribe to HBO and/or Cinemax unlimited access to the corresponding networks' streaming services -- for no additional charge -- at any time, on any computer in the U.S. with a high-speed Internet connection as well as iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and select Android smartphones. In addition, HBO Go provides access through Kindle Fire tablets, Microsoft’s Xbox 360, Samsung Smart TVs and Roku set-tops.
Phoenix-based Cable One, which is owned by The Washington Post Co., has more than 740,000 customers in 19 states.
“We could not be more excited about the launch of HBO Go and MAX Go with Cable One," David Burzynski, director of digital media with the cable operator, said 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 offers more than 1,400 titles, including all episodes of every season of HBO originals, films, miniseries, sports, documentaries and specials as well as movies. HBO's sister service, Max Go, provides more than 400 titles of Cinemax programming online, including the MAX After Dark series.
To access the services, Cable One’s HBO and Cinemax subscribers can go to HBOGO.com and MAXGO.com or download the HBO Go and MAX Go apps. Subscribers can then sign in with their user ID and password, make their viewing selection and begin watching.
