HBO GO for iOS provides free streaming for HBO subscribers

HBO has released the iOS application for its new HBO GO streaming video service providing subscribers with an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad with access to over 1,400 HBO shows directly on their devices. Available at no additional charge for existing HBO subscribers, HBO GO allows users to view programming over either a Wi-Fi or 3G connection, making the entire lineup of HBO shows and movies available while on-the-go. Bonus features and special behind-the-scenes extras are included in the HBO GO service and the app allows users to also create customized watchlists and smart “Series Pass” lists to easily follow their favorite shows. HBO GO is available only in the U.S. and requires a 3G or Wi-Fi connection for viewing content. The universal iOS app requires iOS 3.2 or later and an iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, third- and fourth-generation iPod touch or iPad. HBO GO is available from the App Store as a free download.

@ #1,

Well, that’s kinda how things work.  I’m lucky to have Charter, which is one of them.  Haven’t tried yet as I’m trying to get the account setup, but looks promising…

Great App with lots of content. Have been waiting for this functionality for a while now and loving it now that it is here. Not even sure if I need Netflix anymore. Only really had Netflix for movies on the go but not a lot of stuff that I haven’t already seen. At least with HBO, I can catch up with old series or watch new ones that are worth watching.

Sure would have saved me a lot of time if your review or more specifically HBO had list ALL the necessary requirements needed to get this down load to work.
