HBO GO launches in Latin America & Carribbean, HBO NOW arrives on Roku


Good news for streaming fans, HBO has announced two new updates to its services.

Game of Thrones viewers in Latin America and the Caribbean rejoice, HBO Latin America has announced its plans to launch a new digital platform for HBO GO as a paid online service, beginning with a launch in Colombia by the end of the year.

Broadband only consumers in these regions will now be able to access content from HBO/MAX channels for the first time, rather than through the Premium HBO/MAX paid TV subscription package through which it is currently available.  Subscribers to the TV service will still be able to use HBO GO free of charge.

The new platform will provide the user with the option to choose whether to operate in Spanish, English or Portuguese, program audio tracks and subtitles, a live HBO linear channel and a redesigned user interface so they can easily access all of its 2,500 titles.

The latest Kit Harington and Iain Glen sightings, plus new pics of Riverrun


According to, the Alcazaba of Almería, confirmed in July to be a season six Game of Thrones location, filming will occur at the thousand-year-old fortress on October 20th and 21st.

This scheduling was inferred from the Alcazaba stating that the decks would be closed to visitors on those dates. Though the shooting dates are not officially confirmed, the speculation is solid, based on this and the dates coinciding with the announcement of the Almería province filming period: October 10th-23rd.

A few days ago, La Voz de Almeria reported their own sources gave them the dates the 20th and 21st for the Alcazaba, making it seem more and more likely that this is accurate.

The purpose of Alcazaba for Game of Thrones is unknown. Speculation runs from new possible Dornish location, to another site for Meereen. Dorne is the most popular guess though- with GoT not returning to Seville, it seems like more Dornish locations are needed, and the Alcazaba does look like a place from George R. R. Martin’s Dorne.
