Grande Communications has joined RCN among MVPDs that have extended access to the HBO Go app on set-tops/DVRs powered by TiVo.
Currently, Grande customers on the TiVo platform who are also HBO subs can access the app via the Movies & Grande VOD selection from the TiVo Central page. Per this FAQ, Grande plans to add a “channel” on the guide that will tune customers directly to the app in the next 30 to 60 days.
Grande offers services in several Texas cities, including Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas, Midland, Odessa, San Antonio, San Marcos and Waco.
The launches follow TiVo’s recent announcement that it had begun to offer HBO Go on its TiVo Bolt, Roamio and Premiere retail product line, and that it would also extend support for the app on select TiVo devices that are distributed by its MVPD partners. Other TiVo U.S. MVPD partners include Buckeye CableSystem, Atlantic Broadband, Midco, Armstrong, GCI, Suddenlink Communications (now part of Altice Group), and Mediacom Communications, among others.
