Warnermedia continues to expand in Taiwan with the launch of its regional streaming service HBO GO on Taiwan Optical Platform (TOP), a leading multiple-system operator.
In April this year, together with its distributor Yong Xin Multimedia, HBO GO made its Taiwan debut with Taiwan Broadband Communications, followed by KBro, Taiwan Fixed Network, Da-Xin Dian CATV and Pin-Nan CATV in May.
HBO GO also comes preloaded on Kbro’s A1 box.
Clement Schwebig, managing director, WarnerMedia Entertainment Networks, Southeast Asia, Pacific & China, said: “While there are other alternative platforms available in Taiwan, our direction is clear – this launch confirms our commitment to the cable-TV ecosystem.
“TOP joins a growing list of pay-TV partners whom we work with to provide even greater value to their subscribers and audience base. This list will continue to grow.”
HBO GO is available to all TOP pay-TV subscribers for an additional NT$99 (US$3.40) per month.
Famous for shows like Game of Thrones and Westworld, HBO GO has exclusive content like Doom Patrol and Love Life, series such as Perry Mason and The Head, as well as blockbusters which include Angel Has Fallen and Uglydolls.
Liao Tzu-Chen, TOP’s chief executive officer, added: “HBO GO offers our subscribers a new entertainment experience. For just NT$99 more per month, they will be able to access their favourite shows anytime, anywhere on their mobile device or have an excellent cinematic experience in their own living room through TOP’s HaTV+ smart TV box.”
