Hbo Go AppHbo Go App, If you do not believe that cutting the cord and there is no competition between Netflix and cable programmers, then you need not read further. If, however, at least see the potential to snatch one day Netflix customers of cable types, then take note: This weekend HBO hopes the 3 millionth download of the application of HBO Go, which premiered on May 2, a company spokesman, said CNET. There are 28 million subscribers to HBO in the United States for the 3 million downloads indicating that about 10 percent of the audience of the company has tested the application.

That’s pretty good when you consider all the cable providers that offer (are you listening to Time Warner Cable?). The mark of 3 million people could be overcome today at 9 pm during the season premiere of the popular vampire romp “True Blood”.

HBO is dangling a carrot to “True Blood” fans to download the application, which allows subscribers to the premium cable network for more than 1,400 shows in iPads, iPhones and Android devices. HBO Go users get to see the next episode of the week immediately after tonight in the season premiere.

The application, which has been applauded by critics and users, see 1 million downloads in its first week. Much of the success of implementation, beyond how to spot that organizes the material and the high quality of the stream, is the large amount of content available. This is Hulu Plus, which is lacking in the number of episodes of new offers from the most popular programs. HBO HBO bent down Go and offers users access to everything in the vault, where the possible risks of system sales of the DVD case.

But apparently HBO is making a great stand and the pitch is a tacit subscriber: if you jump to Netflix, you lose access to some of the best-written television addictive, critically acclaimed and frankly seen nowhere in the last 15 years. Check out just a partial list: “Six Feet Under,” “The Sopranos,” “Sex in the City”, “The Wired” and the new crop of hits including “True Blood” and “Game Thrones. ” Cannot get this fee in its entirety anywhere else on television, and certainly will not appear on the Netflix streaming services anytime in the foreseeable future.

The application is a way of HBO to give users the kind of convenience and demand display that offers Netflix. When it comes to comparing prices, Netflix – which has experienced meteoric growth over the last year and now has more than 23 million customers – is still a lot cheaper than subscribing to cable and HBO. What HBO is confident that the quality of content is good enough to keep the audience?

I’m sure if you’re like me, you have friends who subscribe to Netflix and HBO. They complain all the time how they want to reduce the cable bill, but … “Give up” Entourage? Of course not. “
