Cord Cutters Drive HBO Streaming Services In Spain 21 January 2016

The high online consumption habits of the Spanish have driven HBO to set Spain as the next country in which to launch its standalone streaming VOD platform. Before the end of the year, HBO will launch in Spain a similar service to HBO Go (the Americas) or HBO Nordic (Northern Europe), increasing competition in a market that has just seen the arrival of Netflix.

The plans were revealed by Richard Pepler, HBO’s CEO in an interview with Bloomberg. “We follow the money, we’re making a determination of where we think the most profits lie.” As a result, HBO will retain exclusive rights to its shows, meaning that pay-TV platforms won’t be licensed to show hits like Game of Thrones. Once the current distribution deals expire, fans will only be able to watch HBO programming on the streaming platform in the country.
