HBO Digital Head Alison Moore Talks About HBO Go and More! (Video)

Earlier this week, HBO co-Presidents Eric Kessler and Richard Plepler hosted a cocktail party in San Francisco, along with a screening of HBO’s latest original film, “Game Change.”

Alison Moore, SVP of digital platforms at HBO, talked about that and more in this video interview I did here:
