HBO Go Moving Beyond Mobile to TVs and Game Consoles

Posted by at 5:45 pm on August 3, 2011

Time Warner head Jeff Bewkes said during a results call Wednesday that HBO Go was expanding beyond mobile apps. He expected it to arrive on Internet-capable TVs as well as game consoles in the near future. No signs were given of exactly when or on what platforms.

The existing Android, iPad, and iPhone apps were still proving popular, the CEO said. Another million downloads had come through in the past month to bring HBO Go’s total downloads to four million since it had launched in April.

Mobile apps had not only led to more flexible viewing but more viewing as a whole. Those who had one of the apps ended up watching extra beyond what they did before.

Time Warner requires a subscription to a supporting traditional TV provider to get to HBO Go.
