Georgia Southern Gets HBO GO

Campus HBO GOAs you may know, HBO® has launched its online streaming services, HBO GO®, at Georgia Southern University, providing on-campus student residents with instant, unlimited access to HBO programming anytime, anywhere at no extra charge. The launch is in addition to the existing linear HBO service available to residents.

Georgia Southern students residing in on-campus housing can now get unlimited access to the HBO GO® service – available on any computer in the U.S. with a high-speed Internet connection as well as iPad®, iPhone®, Android devices, Apple TV®, Google Chromecast, Xbox 360®, Xbox One® Samsung® Smart TVs, Roku®, Kindle Fire, Amazon Fire TV and PlayStation® 3 and PlayStation® 4 and more – all at no extra cost.

HBO GO® allows authenticated students to instantly watch every episode of every season of the best HBO® shows. This includes current series like Game of Thrones®, Girls®, and Vinyl ®and classics like The Sopranos®, Sex and the City® and Deadwood®, as well as HBO original films, miniseries, sports, documentaries, comedy specials, and hundreds of the latest blockbuster movies from HBO.

With the online service, students 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 slideshow, 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.
