Through HBO GO, we are excited to be able to provide our subscribers in the Philippines exclusive and easy access to enjoy our vast library of HBO Original programmes from the U.S. and Asia, Hollywood blockbusters, documentaries, stand-up comedies and animated shows,” said Clement Schwebig, Managing Director of WarnerMedia Entertainment Networks, Southeast Asia, Pacific and China, which operates HBO in Asia. “By downloading their favourite programmes, viewers can watch movies and series anytime, anywhere, without an internet connection.”

HBO GO allows subscribers unlimited access to stream thousands of hours of non-stop and uncut entertainment from the latest Hollywood blockbusters and exclusive original content from HBO, HBO Asia and CINEMAX, to Asian movies, series popular kids’ programmes over multiple connected devices.

Each HBO GO account can be viewed on two concurrent streams across five registered devices and the service has Airplay and Chromecast functionality. The service also allows content to be downloaded and watched later with no Internet connection.
