Coming to iPad and iPhone HBO Go
The the premium cable television network HBO released a teaser video late last week on youtube. According to the HBO video the go service is on its way to the iPhone, iPad and Android base devices. HBO owned by Time Warner Cable, will be releasing an iOS app that streams movies and the network’s own shows.
The teaser video highlights the app’s features and indicates a planned release date of May 2, 2011.
The service allows people to stream 1,400 HBO shows, movies and documentaries such as sports, specials, blockbuster hits and HBO original series over the web.
HBO has refused to offer Netflix their content and is going it alone and will compete with Netflix. It will be interesting to see if Netflix customers switch and if they do will Netfilx raise their prices to compensate for the loss or will HBO cuts its prices? However HBO has premium content but also at a premium price.
