Sling TV and HBO have announced that HBO will head to the streaming Sling TV service, ahead of the Game of Thrones season launch on April 12. HBO will cost $15 per month as part of the "Best of Live TV" core package that costs $20 per month for Sling TV subscribers.
"Sling TV is bringing HBO to our customers on all of our supported devices in time for one of the most important TV moments of the year," said Roger Lynch, CEO of Sling TV. "HBO delivers hit shows and movies that TV viewers crave, and with this addition we're adding another heavy hitter to a lineup that includes ESPN, AMC, TNT and more."
Sling TV continues to add more channels and content for its subscribers, and has proven to be a legitimate cord cutting option for consumers.
"It has always been our desire to make the HBO subscription widely accessible," said Tom Woodbury, president of global distribution for HBO. "Sling TV is a part of that ongoing evolution and we believe HBO is a great addition to the platform."
