The standalone OTT is immediately available to all Verizon standalone broadband customers, including FiOS and high-speed internet customers, for a 30-day free trial.  HBO content will also be coming soon to Verizon’s upcoming mobile video platform.

“Our customers want choice in accessing premium content when and where they desire, on a variety of devices,” said Ben Grad, executive director of content strategy and acquisition for Verizon. “HBO NOW brings compelling content and choice to Verizon broadband customers today – and exciting possibilities for HBO content within Verizon’s pending mobile video service.”
