HBO UK Website

The HBO UK Website delivers all content for the US channel HBO to its UK fan base.

I worked on all the server side code for this project including an MVC PHP structure to work with MySql Stored Procedures and Triggers that deliver the content to the flash client.

The website is built using Adobe Flash AS3 with AMFPHP communicating with the PHP MVC layer. Each piece of content is then returned from a MySQL database using stored procedures that sit inside the database layer. This allows a greater level of abstraction from the server side PHP MVC structure.

Content can be displayed through a series of season number selections. Clicking a particular season number will load content – including images for that show. Feeds from Facebook and Twitter are also retrieved from various HBO fan pages for that show.
