HBO Launches Stand-Alone Streaming Service in Seven More European Countries
"We are making it even easier for consumers to become HBO subscribers," says the CEO of HBO Europe as the service hits Bulgaria, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
HBO is expanding its stand-alone, or direct-to-consumer, streaming video service to seven more Central European countries.
Viewers in Bulgaria, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia and Bosnia and Herzegovina will have direct access to HBO Go on a stand-alone basis starting Wednesday.
The move follows the launch of such an offer two weeks ago in Hungary, Romania, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
HBO Go offers HBO's entire library of original series, films and documentaries, along with HBO Europe's locally produced drama and documentaries and a wide selection of the best content from other premium TV services.
Available over the Internet, HBO Go enables subscribers to enjoy top original content, such as Game of Thrones, Westworld and Silicon Valley alongside popular classic series like Sex and the City, The Sopranos and The Wire. Subscribers will also get access to HBO Europe local programming, such as Shadows (Romania), Burning Bush (Czech Republic), The Pack (Poland) and Golden Life (Hungary).
The service will be available across a range of Internet-enabled devices, including computers, smartphones, tablets and smart TVs.
Herve Payan, CEO of HBO Europe, said: "With the further expansion of HBO Go into seven additional territories we are making it even easier for consumers to become HBO subscribers."
