Those who love streaming content now have a choice between HBO Go and HBO Now. Home Box Office is one of the companies that have served its customers with streaming content for quite some time. The company has helped in revolutionizing the movie industry to the extent that the need to attend theatres to watch movies is increasingly becoming out of fashion. At the comfort of your home or office, you can get a full range of entertainment by streaming content. To bring about some levels of differentiation, the company has split its products into HBO Now and HBO Go. Despite the two being seemingly different products, there are a lot of similarities as well as some few differences which can help you make an informed choice.


The content that is streamed by the two sites is similar in a number of aspects. Most of the content that was initially delivered in the original site before the split is still the same. As such, any customer can access most of the content from either platform. The interfaces of the two apps are quite similar, making navigation intuitive. A person who is familiar with navigating one app will find it easier to navigate the other.


The charges for HBO Now and HBO Go are quite different. HBO Now is an independent package that does not depend on a cable subscription. For just $15 per month, you can have unlimited access to streaming content. On the other hand, HBO Go is not an independent service and one must first subscribe to HBO. This implies that an individual must either have subscribed to cable or satellite. There are, however, some service providers that offer HBO access to customers who are already connected to the internet.

Online Entertainment on the Rise

Within the entertainment industry, there are various stakeholders making waves content in 2019. With the iGaming revolution and the wake of poker being ultra-popular, you can use your internet connection to play casino games such as poker tournaments online for money. In addition to this, we’ve already seen online-based video games, so-called MMOs, becoming increasingly popular, while radio lovers have turned to online radio to enjoy a variety of radio stations.

Compatibility with other devices

If you are not interested in spending your bucks on HBO subscriptions, whether streaming-only or through your cable package, you can take advantage of the HBO produce option which can be accessed on Amazon Prime Video.  Notably, HBO Go has been in existence for 9 years now and has a big list of devices that it is compatible with. On the other hand, HBO Now has been around since 2015 and was available almost exclusively to Apple products such as Apple TV and iPad.
