Cablevision, Bright House add HBO Go, Max Go TV Everywhere play

Time Warner (NYSE: TWX) executives have been busy the past couple of weeks, wrapping up new customers for the content owner's HBO Go and Max Go online services.

Last week, it announced Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) finally would be getting the TV Everywhere services. On Monday, TW added Cablevision (NYSE: CVC) to the fold. Bright House Networks also said it would be launching HBO Go, with plans to roll out a beta offering in January.

HBO said the trio of deals makes its programming, which is available free to authenticated HBO subscribers, available to 98 percent of its subscribers in the United States.

HBO Go launched more than a year ago and has quickly added partners, including Verizon (NYSE: VZ)'s FiOS TV service and AT&T (NYSE: T)'s U-verse service.

While the service is available to subscribers online and on tablets like Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL)'s iPad, it can also be accessed on TV sets by using Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT)'s Xbox game console, for example.
