“The launch of HBO GO as a standalone OTT service in the Philippines is a natural evolution for the platform in Asia. Through HBO GO, we are excited to be able to provide our subscribers in the Philippines exclusive and easy access to enjoy our vast library of HBO Original programmes from the US and Asia, plus Hollywood blockbusters, documentaries, stand-up comedies and animated shows,” said Clement Schwebig, managing director of WarnerMedia Entertainment Networks, South-east Asia, Pacific and China, which operates HBO in Asia.
“By downloading their favourite programmes, viewers can watch movies and series anytime, anywhere, without an Internet connection.”
The service is accessible via the HBOGOAsia.com or mobile devices with the HBO GO application for Php149 (US$3) a month, starting with a seven-day free trial.
HBO GO is currently available in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Vietnam, and they will be expanding in other Asian territories soon.
