HBO's "TV Everywhere" apps for Apple and Google Android devices have been downloaded more than 1 million times since their April 29 release, according to network co-president Eric Kessler.

HBOGo offers access to more than 1,400 movies and TV show episodes, including every episode of every season of HBO's original series to subscribers of participating affiliates, online at HBO.com and through the mobile apps.

So far, Time Warner Cable and Cablevision Systems are the only major pay-TV providers that do not have agreements to offer HBOGo; TWC has said it is in "active discussions" with its erstwhile corporate cousin on the service.

"It is a great milestone to hit so quickly but what is even more exciting is that we are seeing continued enthusiasm and activity each day," said Kessler, speaking at the Streaming Media East 2011 conference in New York Tuesday.

Providers that offer HBOGo, available over any broadband connection in the U.S., include Comcast, DirecTV, Dish Network, Cox Communications, AT&T U-verse TV, Verizon FiOS TV, Suddenlink Communications and Charter Communications (in a beta rollout).

The free HBOGo apps are available from Apple's iTunes App Store and via Google's Android Marketplace.
