se years (other than certain animated films and certain other specified films) during the applicable license period. A majority of these agreements cover theatrical film slates through release year 2021 or beyond. International Programming A substantial portion of the programming on Home Box Office’s international premium pay, basic tier television and streaming services consists of feature films licensed from major studios in the U.S. Home Box Office also has agreements to license older films from a number of major U.S. studios and other domestic and international independent distributors. In addition to films, Home Box Office’s international content offerings may feature licensed HBO- and Cinemax-branded television programming, local language original programming and/or U.S. television programming produced by other production studios. Home Box Office’s Businesses and Revenues Domestic Premium Pay Television and Streaming Services Home Box Office generates revenues principally from providing its programming to domestic affiliates and other distributors that have contracted to receive and distribute the programming to their customers who subscribe to the HBO and Cinemax services. As of December 31, 2015, Home Box Office had approximately 49 million domestic premium pay subscribers. The HBO and Cinemax services are distributed by Home Box Office’s domestic affiliates that have contracted to receive and distribute Home Box Office’s programming to their customers who subscribe to the HBO and Cinemax services. In addition to viewing HBO and Cinemax programming on an HBO or Cinemax multiplex television channel, subscribers can also view HBO and Cinemax programming through Home Box Office’s on-demand products, HBO On Demand and Cinemax On Demand, and its HBO GO and MAX GO streaming video-on-demand platforms. The programming on HBO GO and MAX GO includes most seasons of HBO’s and Cinemax’s original series, as well as feature films, HBO mini-series and films, sports programming, documentaries, comedy and music specials, bonus features and behind-the-scenes extras. Home Box Office’s agreements with its domestic affiliates are typically long-term arrangements that provide for annual service fee increases and marketing support. While fees to Home Box Office under affiliate agreements are generally based on the number of subscribers served by the affiliates, the relationship between subscriber totals and the amount of revenues earned depends on the specific terms of the applicable agreement, which may include basic and/or pay television subscriber thresholds, volume discounts and other performance-based discounts. Marketing and promotional activities intended to retain existing subscribers and acquire new subscribers may also impact revenue earned. In addition to offering HBO as part of their multichannel video subscription packages, some affiliates are offering their subscribers smaller bundles of networks that include broadcast and/or select basic cable networks and HBO. HBO NOW is available across various platforms and devices, including through digital distributors such as Amazon, Apple, Google and Roku, as well as some of Home Box Office’s traditional affiliates. Home Box Office plans to continue to expand the number of distribution partners and supported platforms and devices for HBO NOW. HBO NOW is generally offered with a free trial period, and a user generates revenues for Home Box Office and is considered a subscriber after the end of the free trial period. Like HBO GO, HBO NOW offers most seasons of HBO’s original series, as well as feature films, HBO mini-series and films, sports programming, documentaries, comedy and music specials, bonus features and behind-the-scenes extras. International Premium Pay, Basic Tier Television and Streaming Services Ccountry-specific HBO- and Cinemax-branded premium pay, basic tier television and streaming services are distributed in approximately 60 countries in Latin America, Asia and Europe.
