ORLANDO, Fla. — Waiting for your delayed flight or passing time on a long road trip will be a little more interesting for Bright House Networks customers.

Beginning in the next month, Bright House Networks customers who subscribe to HBO and Cinemax as part of their video service will be able to access these premium channel’s online video destinations, HBO GO and MAX GO, at no additional cost from any U.S. location through a high-speed broadband connected computer.

HBO GO’s mobile app is available for download on Apple’s iPad, iPhone and iPod touch; as well as select Android devices.

These services require Bright House Networks video customers to have a My Services account. To register for a My Services account, Bright House Networks customers can go to www.brighthouse.com/myservices. The My Services account login will give customers free authenticated access to use HBO GO and MAX GO any time.

HBO GO gives viewers unlimited access to over 1,400 titles online, including current series like Game of Thrones, True Blood, and Boardwalk Empire, classics like The Sopranos, Sex and the City and Deadwood, plus HBO original films, miniseries, sports, documentaries, and specials as well as a wide selection of blockbuster theatricals. The service also includes bonus content and special behind-the-scenes extras.

HBO’s sister service, MAX GO, adds more than 400 titles of Cinemax programming online, providing instant access to hundreds of Hollywood hit movies, indies, cult favorites, the MAX After Dark series as well as new and exclusive, prime time drama series like Strike Back, specifically created for the channel.

With the online services, Bright House Networks customers get most new titles simultaneously with their premiere on the networks; the ability to create a “Watchlist” that keeps track of bookmarked content for later viewing; bonus content including interviews, recaps, and behind-the-scenes extras; and customizable views showing titles in slide show, grid or list format. In addition, HBO GO can be personalized through a “Series Pass” capability which automatically alerts viewers to new episodes of favorite HBO programs when they arrive on the service.

HBO GO and MAX GO are the latest additions to HBO’s digital offerings and a perfect complement to HBO On Demand and Cinemax On Demand with even more viewing choices. On both services, most programming is available in high definition.

Bright House Networks is the sixth largest owner and operator of cable systems in the United States with more than 2,4 million customers.

In Michigan, Bright House serves Farmington, Farmington Hills, Livonia, Northville, Northville Township, Novi and Redford Township.
