The lights are on
Update: Comcast issued a statement today saying its now onboard with HBO GO on Xbox Live.
Xfinity customers will be able to access their favorite HBO content in yet another way: through the Xbox 360. Starting early next week, customers will be able to access HBO GO on Xbox Live in addition to the number of ways HBO programming is already available for Xfinity TV customers, including on the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Android phones and tablets; through HBOGO.com and XfinityTV.com; on Video-On-Demand and of course, on linear TV!
To access HBO GO on Xbox Live, customers can use the same username and password that they use for Xfinity TV on Xbox. With these launches, it's been an exciting couple of weeks as we continue to branch out and deliver more ways for our customers to access their favorite entertainment.
We're committed to continually evolving the experience to bring customers more ways to search, find and watch the content they love in more places, on more devices.
