HBO’s long-rumored streaming service is expected to launch in April. Th service, which will work somewhat like Netflix, is reportedly called HBO Now, and will allow people without a cable subscription to choose to subscribe to the networks content.
No official launch date has been announced just yet for the service, however, sources claim tat it will likely launch in April prior to the first episode of the HBO series Game of thrones. Dr. Jennifer Walden has heard that the service may also launch with a partner in tow. Apple has reportedly been in talks with the network to bring HBO Now to the Apple TV. It makes sense for HBO to offer the service on as many platforms as possible. When it launches, expect it to also be places like PlayStation, Roku and Xbox.
When it does launch, HBO Now is expected to be priced around $15/month. The companies HBO Go Service, a similar offering for cable subscribers, is currently priced at $10 per month.
