I recently added HBO channel to my package. When will I be able to stream HBO to my laptop?
We currently do not have a way to stream the actual live TV channel to your laptop, but you can view the On Demand HBO content from our Video On Demand website http://vod.shaw.ca. Some of the titles are enabled for playback online via the website. You can also download the Movie Central Go App if you have an iOS enabled device : Shaw Go Movie Central App - iOS
Hope this helps.
Are there specifically any HBO shows, once stored on VOD that can then be viewed through my laptop?
There are some HBO shows that can be streamed from the http://vod.shaw.ca website, but they will require a persistent internet connection and the connection has to be from within Canada I believe.
Sorry I didn't give you more info Ali.
My laptop is in my house. I have shaw internet as well. I would like to watch my HBO programs while my wife is monopolizing the main tv.
So do you know which hbo programs i can vod to stream to my laptop?
No problem, the ones that can be streamed online, there is no specific list. You would have to check by opening the page for that show and then order the title to view the options for playback. Some of the HBO programs that I checked like Dexter, Boardwalk Empire, Curb Your Enthusiasm, House Of Lies are view-able online.
See list of titles here for Movie Central (& HBO) - https://vod.shaw.ca/subscription/SUB_MC_Extra/
You have a few options, you can sort by Movies, TV
If I try for example - Boardwalk Empire - MC HBO - Boardwalk Empire - MC HBO (2013) - Tv - Shaw On Demand
I'll have to open the page, click order, sign-in, choose HD or SD, then it will give me the option to Watch Online.
