Keeping up with HBO GO

With Hollywood blockbusters and HBO Original series like Game of Thrones and Westworld, HBO has always been our go-to channel on cable. So I was excited to hear that they have recently introduced over 700 new episodes of kids’ programs on their HBO GO app. We now have entertainment on the go for the whole family!

Family travels are a big part of our lives so very often than not, we get to face dreary flights and long road trips where we had to entertain the kids for sanity sake. With HBO GO, we now have the ability to download shows for offline viewing (ideal for flights and road trips) to keep the kids occupied. From their favourite cartoon series such as We Bare Bears, PowerPuff Girls and Sesame Street (and the list goes on!), to recent movies like Despicable Me and Lego trilogies, the girls are spoilt for choice.

Another interesting feature is the ability to register up to 5 devices so the girls (and us) don’t have to fight over their programme preferences - Leia is crazy over Sesame Street whereas Lauren simply adores We Bare Bears! And I can continue to binge watch Big Little Lies on my lappie.


Besides the variety of shows for kids, what we really appreciate as parents is the safety function that allow us to restrict content viewership to our kids. Compared to social video platforms with a constant barrage of click baits to nonsensical uncensored videos, we can restrict content at HBO GO to Parental Guidance (PG) shows so girls can freely explore within the app without risk of watching iffy stuff.

For the holiday season, we are simply excited to huddle up at home to catch up on the slew of movies available on HBO. We haven’t caught Despicable Me 3 and Pitch Perfect 3 on the big screen, so i guess we will be on to that pretty soon! Happy holidays!
