April 9, 2012 |

Starting this week [today] Comcast Xfinity customers will be able to view HBO Go on Xbox 360 consoles.

Xbox 360 owners will also have to have an Xbox LIVE Gold subscription. The only caveat is the video accessed through HBO Go will count towards Comcast’s 250GB data limit. And man, that HD content can eat up bandwidth. The free app can be installed via the Xbox Marketplace.

HBO GO/MAX GO launch on Time Warner Cable with no Roku support

January 16, 2012 |

Just in case you missed the news that HBO GO and MAX GO are now available for Time Warner Cable customers, we thought we’d post an addendum to the earlier news of the official launch of the service after a short beta testing period. HBO GO and MAX GO are available for supporting devices via apps, which can be found on the iTunes store and Android Market. However, TWC customers appear disappointed that the service has launched without Roku support. TWC customers are able to log-in and register on the HBO GO and MAX GO websites, but are not able to find support for Roku devices.

New HBO and Cinemax customers may have also found they have to wait for access, as the billing might take up to 24 hours to process (and in some cases customers reported 48 hours). Read More
