MONROE, La. – As part of its ongoing commitment to offer advanced services to its Prism™ TV customers, CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE: CTL), today announced the launch of HBO GO® and MAX GO®. CenturyLink® Prism™ customers who subscribe to HBO® and/or Cinemax® will now have free, unlimited access to the corresponding new 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®, Kindle Fire, select Android™ devices and platforms such as Xbox 360®, Samsung Smart TVs™ and Roku®.
This offer is CenturyLink’s entry into the “TV Everywhere” concept, allowing customers to access their favorite shows and movies wherever they are, using technologies other than their television sets. HBO GO, which offers more than 1,400 titles online, allows CenturyLink’s HBO subscribers to instantly watch every episode of every season of their favorite HBO shows, including current series like Game of Thrones®, True Blood®, and Boardwalk Empire® plus HBO original films, miniseries, sports, documentaries and specials.
HBO’s sister service, MAX GO, adds more than 400 titles of Cinemax programming online, providing instant access to hundreds of Hollywood hit movies, indies and drama series like Strike Back™, specifically created for the channel.
With the online services, CenturyLink® Prism™ TV customers get most new titles simultaneously with their premiere on the networks and the ability to create a “Watchlist” that keeps track of bookmarked content for viewing later, bonus content including interviews, recaps, and behind-the-scenes extras. In addition, HBO GO can be personalized through a “Series Pass®” capability which automatically alerts viewers to new episodes of their favorite HBO programs.
HBO GO and MAX GO are the latest additions to HBO’s digital offerings and complement HBO On Demand® and Cinemax On Demand® which offers even more viewing choices and the opportunity to watch a movie, pause it and finish it later. On both services, most programming is available in high definition.
Prism™ TV HBO and Cinemax subscribers can go to HBOGO.com and MAXGO.com and sign in with their www.centurylink.net email address and password. Customers can also download HBO GO and MAX GO apps on their mobile device, make their viewing selection and begin watching.
