Re: HBO to Let Subscribers Stream HBO Go to TV Over AirPlay

Haven't cared about their orig programming since Sopranos and Rome.

To those that might not know...HBO GO has a much more extensive offering than HBO On Demand.
For example, while On Demand might have Sopranos season 4 episodes 1-8....HBO GO will have every episode from every season.

That's.. impressive.

It's 2013. I can stream whatever movie I want right now from Netflix or Hulu.

Are there exclusives or something?

Yes. As Daemon mentioned, HBO is better (or at least as well) known for its original programming. To mention just a few that are current:

Game of Thrones
Boardwalk Empire
True Blood
Girls


(I watch the first three)

As for past series, there have been a couple of gems that you might have heard of, such as The Sopranos.

There are also some excellent documentaries, such as the currently running Mea Maxima Culpa, about the first-known public protest against clerical sexual abuse.

Actually...you can't...unless your taste in movies is severely limited. There's still tons of stuff that isn't available on Netflix--you still have to order the discs to see most of what they offer. Hulu is a pain because of all of the ads that they push at you. Sure...I know that there's no such thing as "free" content anymore, but I'd still like to watch a film in its entirety without interruptions.

Good to hear about HBO. HBO is the only service that I will pay for. I don't even bother watching it "live" now--I just fire up HBO Go and watch what I want whenever I want.

HBO is more known for its original programming than its movie catalog these days.

Anyway, I tested the app last night and it outputs 5.1 DD sound on streams that support it, which is nice. I notice no difference in quality from live broadcasts and streams from the app.

Between the WatchESPN App, CNN App and HBO Go, all of the pieces necessary to have an a la carte cable package are there, if they'd just allow them (which they never will without force of law)

Cord-cutting sounds VERY tempting...

Fine if you're a subscriber. I'm a cord cutter and this doesn't do me any good.

HBO to Finally Let Subscribers Stream HBO Go to TV Over AirPlay

By Ina Fried
HBO said on Tuesday that, at long last, its subscribers will be able to stream programming from an iPhone or iPad onto their television via AirPlay. Speaking at our D: Dive Into Media conference on Tuesday, HBO's Eric Kessler said "effective today, we will be enabling AirPlay" for HBO Go. "Our long-term goal for Go is to be on all devices all platforms," Kessler said. It's already on Xbox, Roku and other devices. As for why the company doesn't just get directly on Apple TV, Kessler said "We will get on Apple TV, as we've said all along."

About time. And they should move faster for an HBO GO app for the Apple TV.
