Last April, Astral Media confirmed they planned to launch HBO GO to Canadians in the Fall, but now it has arrived in the form of the free app The Movie Network GO for iOS. This app allows existing TV subscribers to watch over 1,200 titles and 1,500 hours of content from HBO Canada, The Movie Network, and The Movie Network Encore in one app on your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Mac or PC (from www.tmngo.ca).
TMN GO is currently only available in Eastern Canada to customers of Bell Fibe TV, Bell Satellite TV and Cogeco Cable. Rogers is set to launch the service in the coming weeks with more TV providers set to join shortly after.
The app features pick-up-and-play so you can watch from one device and continue from another, families can have up to three simultaneous streams and five registered devices per subscriber household, stream quality adapts to your internet connection and titles can be watched over 3G or Wi-Fi. Users can also control video quality to keep their bandwidth consumption in check.
