HBO Go spreads to TWC viewers

Ending one of the longer waits for access, Time Warner Cable said it would carry HBO Go within the next month. The deal will let those who subscribe to a traditional TV package stream HBO's current and back catalogs. TWC will need to run a "short" beta before the public launch to make sure the authenticated system works.

Viewers can watch on the web, on Android and iOS devices, and on a handful of media hubs like Roku's Internet Players. Xbox 360 owners will get HBO Go early next year.

The cable giant has been one of the few major TV providers to go without an HBO Go deal. AT&T's U-verse, Charter, Comcast, Cox, Dish, and Verizon's FiOS TV have all made deals earlier. TWC's Jeff Simmermon couldn't comment on what held back the deal, as he was legally bound through agreements and HBO deals.

    It took a while but I'm sure it's worth it for Time Warner customers. I have a different provider and love that I can use HBOGO on my phone. I've used it for a while now and just love it. I'm willing to bet Time Warner customers will love it just as much as I do if not more.
