Cablevision Systems reached an agreement to offer its iO TV customers access to HBO’s authenticated online video destinations, HBO GO and MAX GO. Cablevision customers who subscribe to HBO and/or Cinemax will have free, unlimited access to the corresponding online services at any time, on any computer in the United States with a high-speed Internet connection as well as iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and select Android devices. The company expects to launch these services in the next few months.

With the online services, Cablevision customers will have access to most new titles simultaneously with their premiere on the networks; the ability to create a "Watchlist" that keeps track of bookmarked content for later viewing; bonus content including interviews, recaps, and behind-the-scenes extras; and customizable views showing titles in slideshow, grid or list format. In addition, HBO GO can be personalized through a "Series Pass" capability, which automatically alerts viewers to new episodes of favorite HBO programs when they arrive on the service.
