Coming to iPad and iPhone HBO Go
The the premium cable television network HBO released a teaser video late last week on youtube. According to the HBO video the go service is on its way to the iPhone, iPad and Android base devices. HBO owned by Time Warner Cable, will be releasing an iOS app that streams movies and the network’s own shows.
The teaser video highlights the app’s features and indicates a planned release date of May 2, 2011.
The service allows people to stream 1,400 HBO shows, movies and documentaries such as sports, specials, blockbuster hits and HBO original series over the web.
HBO has refused to offer Netflix their content and is going it alone and will compete with Netflix. It will be interesting to see if Netflix customers switch and if they do will Netfilx raise their prices to compensate for the loss or will HBO cuts its prices? However HBO has premium content but also at a premium price.

I'd rather much pay for a Hulu subscription than a HBO sub.

I personally would rather have netflix especially if it's cheaper but I definitely like how all the TV content is now showing up in iDevices.

This is coming to Android as well. It is going to be huge considering Netflix hasn't hashed out the details of DRM vs Android. If HBO(and I believe Dish Network too) drop before Netflix does then Netflix is going to take a beating.

I have netflix and hulu (no cable/satellite however). The only reason I would get this is to watch Dexter....

That's awesome...competition on any level is good. Maybe Netflix will stop with the DVD crap and let me stream NEW STUFF :] Who orders DVD's anymore anyway...sitting by the mailbox waiting..hahaha!

It will be interesting to see if Netflix has to raise its prices or if HBO cuts its prices.
Wouldn't it be the other way around where HBO would need to cut their price to compete with the very affordable Netflix?
