September 4, 2014 – Frankfort Plant Board (FPB) today announced the launch of HBO’s authenticated online video destinations, HBO GO® and MAX GO®. FPB customers who subscribe to HBO and/or Cinemax will now have free, unlimited access to the corresponding online services at any time, on any computer in the U.S. with a high-speed Internet connection as well as iPad®, iPhone®, iPod touch® and select Android™ devices. HBO subscribers can enjoy even more ways to watch on Apple TV®, Google Chromecast, Xbox 360®, Samsung® Smart TVs, Roku®, Kindle Fire and PlayStation®3.
FPB Assistant General Manager of Cable-Telecom John Higginbotham says this service has been anxiously awaited by subscribers. “HBO GO, which offers more than 2,000 titles online, allows FPB authenticated HBO customers to instantly watch every episode of every season of the best HBO shows. This includes current series like Game of Thrones®, True Blood® and Boardwalk Empire®, classics like The Sopranos®, Sex and the City® and Deadwood®, as well as HBO original films, miniseries, sports, documentaries, comedy specials, and hundreds of the latest blockbuster movies. “
HBO’s sister service, MAX GO, adds more than 550 titles of Cinemax programming online, providing instant access to hundreds of Hollywood hit movies, indies, cult favorites, the MAX After Dark series as well as new and exclusive, primetime high-impact drama series like Strike Back® and BansheeSM, specifically created for the channel.
With the online services, FPB customers get most new titles simultaneously with their premiere on the networks; the ability to create a “Watchlist” that keeps track of bookmarked content for later viewing; bonus content including interviews, recaps and behind-the-scenes extras; and customizable views showing titles in slideshow, grid or list format. In addition, HBO GO can be personalized through a “Series Pass®” capability which automatically alerts viewers to new episodes of favorite HBO programs when they arrive on the service.
HBO GO and MAX GO are the latest additions to HBO’s digital offerings and a perfect complement to HBO On Demand® and Cinemax On Demand® with even more viewing choices. On both services, most programming is available in high definition.
To access online, FPB Premium HBO and Cinemax subscribers can go to HBOGO.com and MAXGO.com, or simply log onto fpb.cc/wtve. Subscribers can then sign in with their FPB user ID and password, make their viewing selection and begin watching.
