HBO content for Dish

January 10, 2012

Dish Network and HBO have confirmed an agreement that will give Dish customers expanded access to HBO’s programming. The agreement enables Dish customers with or without Internet, who subscribe to HBO and Cinemax, to watch expanded selections of HBO content.

Dish customers with Internet access and select Dish HD DVRs who subscribe to HBO or Cinemax will be able to enjoy an expanded version of HBO On Demand and Cinemax On Demand, giving them instant access to virtually every episode of every season of the best HBO shows — most of which are available in HD – as well as popular Hollywood hit movies, documentaries, stand-up comedies, sporting events, and independent films.

In addition, a new feature called Dish Unplugged will make hundreds of HBO movies and TV shows available via satellite to the Dish DVR. Customers who subscribe to HBO will have instant access to HBO programming through their receiver in the highest video quality and with no buffering. These programmes will be refreshed every day by satellite, providing HBO customers the most current selection of HBO programming.
