HBO’s Game of Thrones

Sky and HBO have extended their relationship by agreeing a new deal that will make Sky Atlantic the home of Home Box Office (HBO) for 21 million Sky customers across Europe.

All the episodes of current series such as True Detective will be available to view on catch up, stacked and to be watched as the series transmits. As well as viewing their favourite shows when they want, customers can watch them where they want using Europe’s biggest mobile TV service, Sky Go, via streaming and download.

Customers who use Sky’s streaming platforms, NOW TV and Sky Online will also have access to the channel live or they can watch episodes on demand on a range of compatible devices.

“HBO continues to deliver many of the most-talked about and exciting TV shows anywhere in the world,” comments Gary Davey, Managing Director, Content, Sky. “This new agreement, Sky’s first pan-European content deal, confirms Sky Atlantic as the home of HBO in all our markets both live and on demand. Sky and HBO share many common values, as well as a passion for high-quality television like Game of Thrones and Veep.  Our partnership, in its sixth year, now escalates to a whole new level.  HBO has an amazing slate planned for 2016 including Vinyl and Westworld but it will also see the premiere of our first co-production together, the Young Pope starring Jude Law.”
