Sling TV to offer HBO subscription

Thursday 2 April 2015 | 09:06 CET | News
The online service Sling TV announced it will offer access to HBO's live channel and a selection of VoD content from HBO. Subscribers to Sling's USD 20 subscription can add the HBO service for another USD 15 per month. The service is expected to launch on Sling in time for the 12 April premiere of the next series of 'Game of Thrones'. Sling said that in addition to the live channel, customers will be able to access the same VoD content HBO Now offers on other platforms. To date Apple is the only provider expected to offer a standalone subscription to HBO.
