HBO Nordic lifts Swedish subscribers 49% year-on-year in Q2, Netflix up 14%

Wednesday 4 September 2019 | 14:51 CET | News
HBO Nordic expanded its number of Swedish subscriptions by nearly 49 percent in the second quarter of 2019 compared with Q2 2018, according to consultancy Mediavision. This corresponds to an increase of roughly 200,000 households, which Mediavision attributed to the growth in high-profile title launches by HBO, such as new series of 'Big Little Lies', 'The Handmaid's Tale' and 'Game of Thrones', as well as the serial 'Chernobyl'. In the same period, the number of Netflix subscribers in Sweden increased by 14 percent.
