As of today, selected content from HBO GO can be easily downloaded to a smartphone or tablet while the device is online by clicking on the “Download” icon or on the application's details page. When the download is complete, the titles will be available in the “MY DOWNLOADS” section and can be viewed offline, thus reducing data consumption.
“This new HBO GO feature gives subscribers the convenience and added value of seeing HBO’s unique and exclusive content in a whole new way. If the subscriber is on an airplane or an area with limited connection, he can now view the content offline ”, explains Dionne Bermudez, Vice President of Digital Distribution and Business Research at HBO Latin America. “Our commitment is to offer our subscribers the best entertainment experience, along with the best content, so that they can easily enjoy HBO GO wherever they are and whenever they want.”
The feature will be released with 300 titles available, including the ability to download full seasons. Subscribers will be able to download up to 15 HBO GO titles at any time and on up to three different devices. Each title can be downloaded up to two times, and the download feature will only be available after the free trial period.
The subscriber will have the following options to view the content: up to 30 days after downloading or up to 48 hours after having started watching the program. You will not be able to view the downloaded content if the subscription has ended, or if the content is no longer available on the platform.
