To meet the increasing demand for more streaming services on mobile and at home, in addition to local traditional television, Taiwan Broadband Communications (TBC), has partnered WarnerMedia to launch HBO GO.
“TBC is proud to be the first pay-TV operator in Taiwan to partner with WarnerMedia for the launch of HBO GO. This marks a new milestone for us,” said Jimmy Chen, CEO of the local leading multi-system cable operator.
“I am certain that HBO GO will add more value to TBC subscribers, where they will be able to enjoy the best of Hollywood and HBO original content anytime, anywhere,” said Chen, adding that global hits like Westworld (Season 3) is currently on air and available for catch-up on HBO GO.
WarnerMedia has invested heavily in Taiwanese original productions that include The Teenage Psychic and its sequel, as well as The World Between Us, which were all huge hits. Other local productions include Adventure of the Ring and Dream Raiders which will air on HBO and HBO GO later this year.
As an introductory offer, TBC’s cable TV subscribers can now access the streaming app with an additional monthly or annual fee. Bundle packages are also available to existing subscribers to TBC’s premium movie plan, its HBO plan or its premium entertainment plan.
In Asia, HBO GO is also available in Hong Kong, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore and Vietnam, as well as Thailand as from 30 March 2020.
