18:18 14 November 2017
HBO is launching a stand-alone streaming service in four central European countries, parent company Time Warner has announced. The service will offer viewers in Hungary, the Czech Republic, Romania and Slovakia to stream HBO programming without paying for a TV subscription.
The new service will include HBO’s most popular series, including Game of Thrones, Westworld and Silicon Valley. The list also includes documentaries, movies and HBO Europe’s local content. The service will also offer third-party content from other services, like Twin Peaks, The Handmaid’s Tale, Babylon, Billions, Luther and Berlin.
Pricing for the service is £4.99 per month in Romania and £6.99 for the other three countries.
Herve Payan, CEO of HBO Europe, said in a statement: “HBO Go via affiliates is already a huge success in Central Europe, but our goal is to make it even easier for the many series lovers in these countries to access HBO’s premium content. The launch of HBO Go direct to consumers in Central Europe is a natural step for us after successful launches of HBO streaming services in Spain, Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland.”
