HBO to Launch iPad App

HBO is preparing to launch an app for its HBO Go TV Everywhere product for Apple's iPad, laptops and other mobile devices. The app will launch on May 2, according to a YouTube video HBO posted to tease the new service. 

But it's not clear how many HBO subscribers will be able to use the app to watch HBO original series and movies on mobile devices. The premium network only has a few deals with pay TV providers to offer subscribers access to its HBO Go TV Everywhere site, including Verizon's FiOS TV, DirecTV,  Comcast, and AT&T's U-verse TV.  

Even Time Warner Cable, HBO's former corporate sibling, doesn't yet have a distribution deal for HBO Go.
