No HBO HD VOD...why?

Message 1 of 13

Ok...this is what they didn't understand yesterday.  I have ALL of the HD Channels and Movie Subscriptions.  When I go to VOD and choose Browse Premium Subscriptions, why does HBO not offer ANY High-Def on demand shows or movies?  Cinemax, Showtime, Encore, Starz and even Fear.net do.  We have paid our money, we should get EVERYTHING for it.  There are choices out there like Satellite, Brighthouse and several more on their way.  Granted, I love the quality of the picture that FIOs offers....but what is the deal with HBO?

 

I called and nobody knew at Verizon...even the technician who said he had some calls on this and still didn't know. 

 

If anyone has a clue, please enlighten the rest of us...thanks mucho!!!!  Also, I could have sworn about a year ago, HBO did offer their HD on Demand with shows and movies....or...perhaps that was just a good dream.  hahaha.

Have a great one!!!  Avon Guy...out!

Yes, HBO DID offer on-demand programming in HD at one time.  The have since decided to pull it due to piracy concerns.  This was HBO's decision, not Verizon's.

At this time nobody has HBO on demand in HD

Not comcast, and not verizon

 

I'm hoping HBO figures this out because they are far behind here and

without it i might just lose it and stay with showtime, starz, etc

And this is the main reason why I will be dropping the premiums after my 60 day free period.  HBO is really out in left field on this policy.  I was so excited when I got teh movie package that Band of brothers and other series were on Demand, and then i go to them and none were in HD. 

 

So when HBO brings HD content back to on demand, I'll sign back up.

I suggest that all of you who don't like HBO's policy, let them know.

Any updates on this?  Comcast has had it back for at least a month now.  Shouldn't Verizon be getting it as well?

Verizon will most likely be adding this at some point.  As I said before, it is up to HBO. 

 

Last I heard, Comcast is the only company getting the HD On-Demand content from HBO. 

 

Hopefully Verizon will get it soon too.

I found this article in the blogs page. It didn't mention a specific date, but it did say "this fall"-

 

HBO and Cinemax subscribers will soon have access to the new HBO HD and Cinemax HD VOD channels – each with 150 hours of HD programming per month.  This gives FiOS TV customers more HD programming from HBO and Cinemax than any other provider.


We’re also expanding our Movie Package by adding on-demand HD content from The Movie Channel, by doubling the amount of HD VOD content from Starz, and by adding 150 hours of movies on-demand per month from Encore.
