It would be great to get the precise information on what TTML features they use/accept/require.

Of interest to caption enthusiasts:  last week, HBO GO announced that most of its catalog is now captioned using SMPTE-TT.  HBO GO requires an HBO subscription, so if you have one go to http://www.hbogo.com<http://www.hbogo.com/>, sign up and take a look.

You can also go to http://www.hbogo.com<http://www.hbogo.com/>, then follow (Help > Features > Can I watch shows with closed captions on HBO GO?) to read what they say about this new service.
