You May Soon Be Able To Get HBO Without Paying For Cable

As of now, people who don’t have cable but want to watch “Game of Thrones” or “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver’ have to either buy a cable package or borrow a login to HBO Go, the channel’s streaming service, from another customer. But [Jeff Bewkes,TWC], seemed to imply there may come a time when cord-cutting customers will able to buy a subscription to HBO Go the same way they buy a Netflix membership, without having to pay for TV channels or a cable modem at the same time. […] “[It] is becoming more viable, more interesting,” Bewkes said at the conference. “We’re seriously considering what is the best way to deal with online distribution, but I don’t have anything to announce about it today.” […] Right now, HBO’s deals with pay-TV providers remain lucrative. And if people can get HBO without cable, they may buy only Internet and downgrade their cable packages. – Alexander C. Kaufman,HuffPost Tech
