HBO Go to enable Airplay and ‘will get’ to Apple TV, but still just for cable subscribers
Eric Kessler, President HBO, has just announced that the company is finally adding stupport for Airplay to its iOS apps. Kessler also said that he expects that he’ll be getting on Apple TV eventually — as part of a larger trend of HBO trying to get on as many different devices as possible. HBO Go is apparently enough for the company to feel current — not opening up to earlier windows for purchasing shows or selling HBO content separate from cable subscriptions. “We never want to become your father’s Oldsmobile,” Kessler says, saying that HBO Go keeps the company up with the times.
