HBO Says It’s Going to Start Selling on the Web Next Year

HBO says it’s finally ready: Sometime in the next year the pay-TV service will be selling a Web-only offering. HBO CEO Richard Plepler, speaking at an investor presentation hosted by HBO parent company Time Warner, said the company will start selling a digital version of its service that won’t require a pay-TV subscription in 2015. […] Plepler’s brief statement about its “over the top” plans didn’t spell out the way the company would market and deliver HBO on the Web. It’s possible that the company will build out its own technology to do so. But I’ve also heard industry sources suggest that HBO would work with other companies who are already selling video on the Web, like Amazon.com and Hulu, to deliver its programming. HBO already has a wide-ranging content deal with Amazon. – Peter Kafka,Re/code
