Time Warner subscribers now have access to HBO Go, Max Go After just a three week beta, HBO Go is now live for Time Warner subscribers.
Says the cable company: Finally, something we have all been waiting for. You have no idea how much it pleases me to be able to say this. Today, right this minute, after a long negotiation and a brief beta test:

TIME WARNER CABLE CUSTOMERS WITH SUBSCRIPTIONS TO HBO/CINEMAX ARE NOW ABLE TO USE THE HBO GO/MAX GO APPS.

They're available for download in the Apple app store and Android Market now.


On December 17th, the company announced it would be giving its subscibers access to the massively popular HBO GO service and Cinemax subscribers access to MAX GO, as well.

Both services, which give users access to streaming TV on-demand as long as you are a subscriber, are available on iOS and Android devices as well as in-browser or through Roku set-top boxes. HBO says they have 1400 titles available right now, including all seasons of original programs like Game of Thrones, True Blood, and Boardwalk Empire. Furthermore, HBO GO also streams full-length features, docus and sporting events. MAX GO has 400 Cinemax titles available now, and is always changing.

Not quite. You have to subscribe to HBO's pay TV service to get HBO Go (and your TV provider must give you access in order to get it online.) Unfortunately, DirecTV allows you to go through the web, but not via a Roku box.

I have a similar irk with ESPN3 and Watch ESPN - My ISP is my cable company, but I have DirecTV. Appears neither of those avenues are "good enough" for me to get those other services.
