Sling TV will be the first live Internet TV service to offer linear and Video-On-Demand (VOD) content from HBO.
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. Each month, HBO offers more of the biggest and latest Hollywood hit movies, original HBO Films, groundbreaking documentaries, sports, and comedy and music specials.
“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,” says 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.”
HBO will be available in time for the “Game of Thrones” and “Silicon Valley” season premieres on April 12.
