DirectTV has announced plans to offer HBO GO and MAX GO apps for mobile devices. Right now the services allow DirectTV subscribers who pay for HBO and Cinemax to view content online via a web site for no additional charge. Eventually mobile apps will also be available for Android and iOS.
There are 1400 titles available from HBO including Boardwalk Empire, true Blood, The Sopranos, and Sex and the City as well as original movies, miniseries, and other content. Cinemax content includes 400 titles including movies and the Max After Dark series.
The company says iPhone, iPad, and Android apps will be available later this year. Last summer HBO was saying its video streaming service would be available for the iPad within 6 months, but it looks like the network missed that target.
