HBO Streaming May Expand To Countries In Europe And Asia

Two years after HBO began offering its television shows as a standalone subscription service in Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Norway through a service called HBO Nordic, it’s now looking into expanding the model to other countries, according to an article published Sunday in the The Wall Street Journal. […] The move comes as HBO subscriptions have begun to shrink in the U.S., according to Variety, and as video content competition increases from online services such as Netflix Inc., Amazon.com Inc. and other providers. At the same time, HBO’s revenue in the international market is growing quickly, accounting for about one-quarter of the company’s $4.9 billion in annual revenue. In September, Netflix plans to launch its own streaming service in six European countries, including Germany and France. – Luke Villapaz,International Business Times
