Initially, it will be available in the states of Espirito Santo, Mato Grosso do Sul, Bahia and in the Federal District. And it will reach new states from the first quarter of 2017.

On the other hand, HBO Latin America announced that the updated version of HBO GO, with new interface and functions, is now available as TV Everywhere service for clients of HBO/MAX premium pack in Bolivia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru and Venezuela. The platform also arrived for the first time in the Dominican Republic.
