HBO's Go is a service that is free to HBO subscribers, and lets viewers stream current episodes of shows like True Blood, Entourage, and hit movies on their Macs and PCs. It is, in a way, competing with Netflix's streaming queue, with the only requirement being that you need to be an HBO subscriber to access it. Widening its reach, the company recently said that it would be rolling out the service to newer devices like Apple's tablet, so viewers can take their favorite shows on the road.
