Hell Freezes Over: Amazon and HBO Reach Streaming Deal

Wed Apr 23, 2014 4:12 pm

Apparently HBO and Amazon have struck a deal to allow Amazon Prime members to stream HBO shows? Looks like it will only apply to older HBO shows. But still.

Is HBO THAT affeared of Netflix?

Not Netflix. Comcast.

That only makes sense if TimeWarner and Comcast don't end up merging, as HBO is a subsidiary of TimeWarner, no? The cable empire's ownership of HBO has explained the kibosh on 3rd party HBO streaming all this time..

"Sex and the City, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Entourage are not included in the deal due to pre-existing syndication deals. Neither is Game of Thrones (“too valuable” to HBO, apparently)"
