HBO GO’s core programming includes award-winning HBO Original series, films and documentaries, Max Originals and HBO Asia Originals, supplemented by exclusive, first-run content from major Hollywood and independent studios that offers a mix of originals and acquired content – including kids and family content from Cartoon Network and Warner Bros. Animation.

Upcoming programming highlights include the exclusive premiere of the mystery adventure drama series La Brea and Emmy-winning series, including new comedy Hacks and the highly anticipated third season of drama series Succession. These complement the premiere of the Taiwanese HBO Asia Original Who’s By Your Side along with hit Warner Bros. movies – 45 days after their local theatrical debut in cinemas – including The Suicide Squad, Malignant and Reminiscence.

Boxsets for the original 2007 Gossip Girl series, Pretty Little Liars and HBO classic The Sopranos will be available to stream. Fans of the latter series will also enjoy the exclusive direct to streaming availability of the prequel theatrical title The Many Saints of Newark in November.

Upgrades to the service will also see Dolby 5.1 sound introduced shortly, while three concurrent streams are now allowed.

“With a new price point and some of the best-loved content out there, HBO GO presents its most compelling proposition yet. As we close out 2021, there are more and more reasons to subscribe, especially with the holiday season around the corner,” said Amit Malhotra, managing director for HBO GO / HBO Max in Southeast Asia, India and Korea who leads WarnerMedia’s direct-to-consumer streaming business.
