Budapest/Warsaw December 16th 2010

    HBO Central Europe, the leading provider of premium movie channels in central and eastern Europe, has today launched HBO GO, a broadband video on demand service for subscribers to HBO Poland, available on any computer connected to the internet.
    Initially HBO GO will be available only to customers of INEA, the biggest regional telecom operator in the Polish region of Wielkopolska.
    The new service, which will eventually roll out across the fourteen countries where HBO Central Europe currently operates, will be available only to internet users who have an HBO subscription and a broadband internet service.

    Linda Jensen, CEO of HBO Central Europe, said;
    "We are delighted to announce the first launch of this innovative product, and remain committed to developing our broadband and internet based programs to provide the finest entertainment experience for our subscribers."

    HBO GO, which may be viewed on digital IPTV or digital cable TV networks, is a streaming service, taking advantage of the latest streaming technology which varies the bit rate depending on the broadband connection speed, allowing programs to be watched very smoothly, without interruption. It offers the latest movies and a selection of HBO Original Productions which are available before they premiere on the usual HBO channels.

    The service allows subscribers to watch selected programming on their computers whenever they want, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, which means subscribers can view films or series as often as they wish.

    HBO GO provides the subscriber with over 100 hours a month of a variety of programs: films, series, documentaries and concerts. The offer is refreshed weekly so subscribers can always find something new to watch.
