HBO Asia announced that its streaming service, HBO GO, will launch in Malaysia exclusively on Astro in May. Available complimentary to Astro Movies Pack, customers can access HBO GO via the HBO GO App, Astro GO or Astro set top box.
HBO GO is an internet-based service that allows subscribers unlimited access to stream HBO’s complete library of original versions of all HBO Original content (series, movies and documentaries) from the US and Asia, Hollywood blockbusters as well as all-time favourite kids programmes anytime, anywhere. The latest series will premiere on HBO GO the same time as the US and subscribers will also have access to additional HBO Original content such as behind-the-scenes featurettes and trailers.
Mr. Jonathan Spink, CEO of HBO Asia said, “We are excited to expand HBO GO to more markets in Asia with the launch of HBO GO in Malaysia. The launch of the online streaming service also extends our long partnership with Astro and brings our vast library of content closer to subscribers who can watch it anytime, anywhere, through their digital and mobile devices.” He adds, “Subscribers can now enjoy thousands of hours of HBO Original programmes from the US and Asia, Hollywood blockbusters, documentaries, stand-up comedies, kids content and animated shows on HBO GO by streaming or downloading their favourite programmes, or watching the HBO channel live on HBO GO.”
