Post by Admin » Mon Sep 09, 2019 4:08 am

Linear TV, Live TV, Pay TV, Free TV, OTT, SVOD HBO, Cinemax, AT&T and Warner Media


With so many popular streaming services now having multiple options, things can get down right confusing rather quickly.

Hopefully, this can help make some sense of it.

HBO is Linear - Linear is real time TV that is on a schedule; which is the opposite of pre-recorded content or (VOD) Video On Demand which can be watched any time.

HBO GO is SVOD on Cable or Satellite - SVOD means it is Subscription Video on Demand.

HBO Now is OTT SVOD - OTT is Over The Top and this simply means content that is provided over the Internet that does not require one to have a Cable TV or Satellite subscription.

HBO Max in Latin America is the LatAm Premium Bundle
HBO Max in the U.S. is the all WarnerMedia/AT&T Video Bundle

Cinemax is Linear

MAX Go is Cinemax Linear SVOD

AT&T TV - Is Pay VOD TV -

AT&T Now is Live Pay TV - Formerly DirecTV

AT&T Watch - Is Free TV
