Students living in FIU residence halls now have free access to nearly every episode of every season of the best HBO shows, movies, comedies and sports with HBO GO, the online streaming service from the premium cable network. The launch is in addition to the existing linear HBO service available to residents.

“I am excited that the on-campus residents will now have access to HBO GO content on their schedule,” said Joe Paulick, director of Housing. “Students can take a break from studying anywhere on campus and watch HBO GO on their mobile device or laptop.”

The service is a new addition to the on-campus housing package and can be accessed from a student’s computer, tablet, mobile, streaming players, smart TVs and game consoles. Each resident will get his or her own login.

  1. Visit or download the HBO GO app
  2. Click “sign in”
  3. Scroll down to select Florida International University from the dropdown menu
  4. Complete authentication by following the instructions to log in with school login credentials
  5. Create an HBO GO user ID
  6. Start watching
