Including iPhone and the iPad.
HBO has finally joined the list of companies that are now offering internet TV streaming services. The company announced its service HBO Now at Apple’s Spring Forward event last month. It also confirmed that the service will be exclusive to Apple’s devices for three months.
HBO Now apps have now gone live for the Apple TV as well as iOS devices. The app on Apple TV is separate from HBO Go which requires that users have a cable subcription before they can actually access content. Since HBO Now is an over the top service which doesn’t require a cable subscription it has its separate app.
Through the app users can access all past HBO shows, documentaries, movies and other video on demand content. They will also be able to stream HBO proper live, all for just $14.99 per month.
Customers are being offered a one month free trial and if they decide to keep the service after one month iTunes will automatically bill them $14.99 every single month. Since there are no long term commitments users can decide to stop the subscription whenever they want without added charges.
Those who would like to access the service through their Mac can do so via a web browser by going to www.hbonow.com.
