If you subscribe to HBO and have one of the participating providers, you really should be checking out HBO GO. Hours and hours of content are provided and this most recent update provides better support for AirPlay and multiasking. Here are the notes on version 2.1 changes from iTunes –
“- Includes AirPlay multitasking capability — other apps can be used while video continues to stream via AirPlay.
– Enhancements to the interactive features of Game of Thrones
– General performance enhancements”
It's really nice to see HBO increasing support for AirPlay rather than pulling it away. I love that they are making their content more accessible and hope that someday we'll see some ability to subscribe directly to HBO GO (even without a cable or satellite provider).
The interactive features related to their original programming like TrueBlood and Game of Thrones is some of the best I've seen in any of the major providers. HBO continues to lead in their development on the mobile platforms and in the content they provide for their viewership.
