HBO GO launches as standalone service in the Philippines

WarnerMedia has launched its streaming service, HBO GO, in the Philippines as a standalone OTT service without the need for any pre-existing TV subscription. 

The service is accessible on the HBOGOAsia.com and mobile devices through the HBO GO app that can be downloaded from App Store or Play Store for $3 (PHP149) a month with a 7-day free trial.

“The launch of HBO GO as a standalone OTT service in the Philippines is a natural evolution for the platform in Asia,” said Clement Schwebig, managing director of WarnerMedia Entertainment Networks (SE-Asia, Pacific and China). 

“Through HBO GO, we are excited to be able to provide our subscribers in the Philippines exclusive and easy access to enjoy our vast library of HBO Original programmes from the US and Asia, Hollywood blockbusters, documentaries, stand-up comedies and animated shows. By downloading their favourite programmes, viewers can watch movies and series anytime, anywhere, without an internet connection.”

In Asia, HBO GO is also available in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Vietnam, and will be launching in more Asian territories soon.
