On Friday, HBO Canada signed a content detail which immediately made available all past seasons of current shows such as Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire. 

When will this extra content be made available to MTS customers?

Here is a link to their press release: http://www.corusent.com/home/Corporate/PressReleases/tabid/1697/Default.aspx?Id=2792

Hi CoryB, 
We're working with HBO Canada to finalize our launch date for all this new content but unfortunately we don't have it confirmed yet.

In the MTS TV Revue sent out today there is a section claiming "Every Season, Every Episode, On Demand" for HBO Canada. Does this mean the content has finally been made available to MTS customers? 

Edit: After posting this I checked and the MTS TV Revue is incredible misleading. Not only are seasons still missing but shows are missing including Game of Thrones which is directly referenced in the mail out that occurred today. I would hope that MTS reviews its own marketing such as this for accuracy before sending it out to customers.

Cory - are you 100% sure it isn't there? Just going from memory here but if you go to movie central on demand and then tv series - game of thrones should be there. I will check when I get home for sure but pretty sure I saw it there.

Let me know.

Thanks

As I am not at home I checked on TV To Go. Game of Thrones is completely missing from the tv series section even though other HBO shows are included. I will check further from the set top box later today when I am at home.

Hi CoryB,

The TV to Go app carries a selection of content from Movie Central and HBO right now, with content updated on a monthly basis. There are additional titles available through the On Demand menus on your TV Set Top Box.

Movie Central on Demand is listed in the guide under the "Video on Demand" section of the Menu, not the "TV on Demand" section. I just checked my TV here and 4 seasons of Game of Thrones are showing there.

Sorry about the confusion with the ad in the Revue; it was meant to reference Game of Thrones specifically and not all of the HBO series. That being said, we have added quite a few titles over the past couple weeks, and most of the current series (those still in production); now have all seasons and episodes available. We have a few more that still need to be added over the next couple of weeks as well.

I've passed your feedback on the GoT ad back to our Revue team to ensure there's more clarity in the next issue.

Thanks!
