AT&T, HBO reach multi-platform programming agreement

Tuesday 30 August 2016 | 10:49 CET | News
AT&T and Home Box Office (HBO) reached a multi-year, strategic agreement that will extend HBO's content across all AT&T products. The agreement renews HBO's existing contract with the AT&T DirecTV and U-verse services, and will also make all HBO and Cinemax content available on DirecTV Now. AT&T expects the new streaming service to roll out by the end of 2016. In addition to bringing shows like HBO's multiple Emmy-nominated 'Game of Thrones' and 'Veep' to the DirecTV Now platform, HBO and Cinemax content will also be part of AT&T mobile video bundle offers.
