HBO, Apple Unveil Exclusive Partnership for Stand-alone Streaming Service
HBO Now is coming to Apple TVs.
HBO's standalone streaming service is launching in April — exclusively on Apple devices.
HBO CEO Richard Plepler took the stage at Apple's March 9 event to announced that HBO Now will be available April 12 for $14.99 a month, just in time for the premiere of Game of Thrones.
"When you subscribe to HBO Now, you will have access to all our acclaimed original programming — past, present and future — as well as our unmatched lineup of Hollywood blockbusters," he told the packed room at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco.
HBO Now will be available via an app on Apple iPhones and iPads and will also have a channel on Apple TV. Streaming will also be available via HBONow.com. HBO is continuing discussions with existing distributors and digital partners to offer HBO Now after launch.
The service will offer more than 2,000 titles, including current series such as Girls and Veep as well as library shows such as The Sopranos and Sex and the City.
While onstage at the Apple event, Plepler also unveiled an exclusive new trailer for the new season of Game of Thrones.
