I love HBO GO. It is this new app that I can use in my iphone and iPad. It is good news for HBO subscribers like me. The HBO GO service is free for SKYcable subscribers of the HBO PAK. Subscribers of the basic HBO channel on SKYcable can subscribe to HBO GO for only Php 199 a month while select SKYbroadband subscribers with SKYcable subscription of HBO can enjoy the service for free or at Php 99. I keep missing my favorite HBO shows and now this is one way for me to catch up. I can even interconnect my mobile gadgets on HBO GO and resume viewing exactly where I left off, from my phone to my computer and back.
