HBO GO is the network's standalone streaming service accessible through hbogoasia.ph or the HBO GO app. Stream the latest Hollywood movies and original productions from HBO, HBO Asia, and Cinemax and get access to HBO's original content, like behind-the-scenes exclusives and trailers.


HBO’s vast library of movies, animated shows, and documentaries is now at your fingertips. Best of all, highly-anticipated HBO Original programs premiere at the same time as HBO viewers in the US, which makes catching up easier—including highly-anticipated original productions streaming at the same time as the U.S., so you're never late for any of the action.


The HBO GO app also has handy features that make your viewing experience easier, better, and an overall ideal home theater experience.


1. Download Option

2. Personalized Watchlist

One of the best things about streaming is being able to decide what to watch when you want to watch it. HBO GO's personalized watchlist lets you create a list of shows or movies you can watch anytime you want.


3. HD Streaming

In order to keep watching safe and fun for the whole family, HBO offers a Parental Control feature that restricts access to certain types of content depending on the selected age guidance.

What to Catch on HBO GO: 5 Must-Watch Titles


House of the Dragon

If you’re wondering where to watch Game of Thrones in the Philippines, head straight to HBO GO, where you can also catch its prequel House of the Dragon. This takes place in the same world but features all-new characters. The show follows siblings Aegon, Rhaenys, and Visenya Targaryen as they fight to take over the Seven Kingdoms. 


Euphoria

Euphoria stars Emmy winner Zendaya, Hunter Schafer, Sydney Sweeney, Alexa Demie, Barbie Ferreira, and Maude Apatow. The series follows a group of high school students in a fictional town in Oregon as they navigate through their teen years, gaining praise for its honest depictions of teenage angst, life, love, and loss.


Euphoria is markedly different from other coming-of-age movies on HBO GO, too, for its use of colorful cinematography and unique aesthetic.


Watchmen

If you enjoy action-drama films, Watchmen is a must-watch title for you. The series is directed by Damon Lindelof and stars Regina King, Don Johnson, and Tim Blake Nelson. The movie follows a group of individuals who investigates a crime that involves the police and tackles philosophical questions about morality and human nature.


Succession

One of the best dark comedy shows in recent memory is Succession. It follows the Roy family and their company, Waystar Royco. Here, audiences meet Logan Roy, the head of the family who has been running the company for decades. He has to contend with his children vying for his position. The series is created by Jesse Armstrong and stars Hiam Abbas, Nicholas Braun, Brian Cox, and Kieran Culkin.


The Larry Sanders Show

Fans of TV sitcoms should give The Larry Sanders Show a try. The series aired from 1992 to 1998 and starred the late Garry Shandling as Larry Sanders, the host of a popular late-night talk show.


It follows Larry and his staff of writers, producers, and other employees as they deal with celebrities, the press—and each other. There were notable guest stars during the show's six-season run, including Tom Petty and Jon Stewart.
