Almost two years after the initial launch of HBO Go, Time Warner Cable subscribers will finally have the opportunity to sign up for the network’s online streaming service. As of this week, Time Warner Cable customers who subscribe to HBO and Cinemax will have instant access to over 1,400 titles from the HBO catalog and 400 from Cinemax on the web, via computers, iPads, iPhones, and Android phones. The news comes just days after Time Warner Cable launched its beta trial of the service.

Last year, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings named HBO Go as his company’s most feared competitor, observing that “HBO is becoming much more Netflix-like, and we’re becoming much more HBO-like.” The contest has continued to heat up in the new year, with HBO drawing a line in the sand by announcing that it would no longer sell DVDs and Blu-rays directly to the home video giant. As a Time Warner subscriber, I’ve got no plans to quit Netflix anytime soon, but as HBO beefs up its offerings, it’s certainly possible I’ll become less reliant on Netflix over time.

Read Time Warner Cable’s full press release about HBO Go and Max Go after the jump.
