HBO to Offer Stand-Alone Web Subscription in U.S. Next Year

Updated on

Time Warner Inc.’s HBO plans to offer a long-awaited online-only service in the U.S. next year, letting viewers without a cable or satellite-TV subscription tune into “Game of Thrones” and “Boardwalk Empire.”

Richard Plepler, chief executive officer of the HBO division, didn’t say how much HBO’s new service will cost. While the number of U.S. households that pay for broadband but not TV has climbed to 10 million and is still growing, half of those homes do pay for a streaming service online, he said.
