Sling TV will be the first live internet TV service to offer linear and VOD content from HBO.
HBO will be available in time for the Game of Thrones and Silicon Valley season premieres on April 12. Sling TV with HBO will be available on all devices supported by Sling TV including: Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick; current-generation Roku players and Roku TV models; Xbox One; Android and iOS devices; and Macs and PCs.
HBO will be available for $15 per month when customers sign up for the Best of Live TV core package. The new offering includes one live channel and the same extensive VOD library HBO provides on its other platforms.
“Sling TV is bringing HBO to our customers on all of our supported devices in time for one of the most important TV moments of the year,” said Roger Lynch, CEO of Sling TV.
“HBO delivers hit shows and movies that TV viewers crave, and with this addition we’re adding another heavy hitter to a lineup that includes ESPN, AMC, TNT and more.”
“It is has always been our desire to make the HBO subscription widely accessible,” said Tom Woodbury, president of global distribution, HBO. “Sling TV is a part of that ongoing evolution and we believe HBO is a great addition to the platform.”
