The authentification initiative known as HBO Go, is now available on the iPad. HBO Go is a service that allows HBO subscribers the opportunity to watch the channel’s content online. It has been available as a Web-based program for a year, but now makes a major step with the iPad compatibility. From a NewTeeVee story on the news:
The HBO Go apps were teased in a YouTube ad released last week, promising a May 2 launch date. But they appeared a few days early, enabling subscribers to the premium cable network to access new release movies, as well as every episode from every season of every HBO original series on Apple iOS devices, as well as some Android phones.
The apps are an extension of HBO’s TV Everywhere initiative, which is designed to provide additional value to cable subscribers that pay for the premium network. The HBO Go online video service launched last February, and got a boost earlier this year, when the network drastically expanded the number of videos available online.
