Asia Video Summit Spotlight: HBO Asia


HBO GO, an internet-based streaming service, continues to expand its footprint across Asia.

Vietnam and Malaysia joined markets such as Singapore, Hong Kong and Indonesia this year. “HBO GO will roll out in more territories soon,” said Magdalene Ew, head of marketing, creative and content at HBO Asia. Ew said that ramping up HBO Asia original productions has been a priority. “As a testament to our growing quality of Asian originals, The World Between Us recently made headlines for receiving the greatest number of nominations at the 54th Annual Golden Bell Awards in Taiwan,” she noted.

There’s also a second season of the award-winning HBO Asia original The Teenage Psychic. Original programming from HBO’s U.S. slate features on the HBO Asia channel as well. “Besides U.S. productions, two new HBO Asia original productions are available on HBO GO and HBO this year,” Ew added.
