HBO has updated its HBO GO app to version 9.0, adding support for Apple’s Single Sign-on feature and integration with the iOS and tvOS TV app. The two new features will help unify the mainstream content provider into the Apple TV and iOS viewing experience, allowing users to bypass entering their cable credentials separately in the HBO GO app on their devices as well as tracking their favorite HBO GO shows in the “Watch Next” section of the TV app. The integration will also allow HBO GO users’ viewing habits to be consolidated with other services that support the TV app, providing recommended content based on what you’ve previously watched on any supported service. Single Sign-On support for HBO GO still remains limited to those cable and satellite providers that have signed on with Apple; a complete list can be found on Apple’s Single Sign-On page.
