Streaming HBO TV on Your iPad

Netflix may provide a must-have app for your iPad, but it looks like it’s not going to have any such luck providing users with HBO content – HBO has recently announced that they have moved forward with their HBO GO service which is a new iPad streaming service from the premium cable channel and best of all you can now stream it anywhere you are.

Alright iPad owners, we are getting closer to full TV on the iPad with the introduction of the new streaming service from HBO called HBO GO.  And HBO GO allows an HBO subscriber to stream over 1400 programs on a computer with a Flash-enabled browser.This includes all of the original HBO programming, movies, sports, comedy and all of their specialty shows as well.  And it’s free for subscribers.  This free universal app is pretty amazing.

Here are some of nice features of the app as below:

  • Keep up with your favorites. Watch everything you love about HBO, including HBO original programming, hit movies, sports, comedy and every episode of the best HBO shows, including True Blood®, Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire®, Entourage®, The Sopranos®, Curb Your Enthusiasm®, Sex and the City®, The Wire® and more. Plus, get bonus features and special behind-the-scenes extras!
  • Make it your own. Create a customized Watchlist to catch up on all your favorite HBO shows and hit movies at your convenience. Plus, set a Series Pass® to automatically load your list with all the HBO Original Series you love.
  • Take it with you. Get instant access to HBO GO whenever you want, wherever you are—and never miss a moment of your favorite HBO shows.
  • Enjoy more HBO. Get even more of your favorite HBO programming with HBO GO—FREE with your HBO subscription through participating television providers.

There is a requirement of at least a 3G connection but that makes sense because at any lower speed connection, it would be unwatchable.

If you do not have HBO with your current cable provider you will need to add it to your package.  Here are a list of providers that offer HBO. From here you can pick a provider and see if the services are available.
