A new report has suggested that both tech giant Apple and HBO are in talks to jointly launch the much-anticipated ‘HBO Now video streaming service’.
According to the report, the new video streaming service is likely to be launched in March, timed to the season premier of its blockbuster series, named “Game of Thrones”.
The retail price of the service is likely to be USD 15 per month.
“We know there’s great anticipation around our standalone streaming service. And when we have details to share, we will do so,” an HBO spokesperson said in a statement.
Time Warner, owner of HBO pay-TV service, has made the announcement regarding the new video streaming service in October last year. The attempt was made in order to hold as well as attract more subscribers who are finding a better alternative to pricey cable television subscriptions.
HBO Now will be offering its consumers direct accessibility to HBO with the help of a broadband connection.
Meanwhile, Apple was unavailable for an immediate response to emailed requests.
