HBO GO Goes D2C in Taiwan


Following launch agreements with distribution partners in Taiwan early this year, HBO GO can now also be downloaded as a standalone service.

HBO GO is now available directly to consumers via app stores in Taiwan, from the App Store or on Google Play. Recent premieres of HBO Asia Originals include The Head and The Bridge season two, which are both airing now, while Workers, a series that follows a group of construction laborers who daydream about being rich, has just concluded on run but is still available on HBO GO to stream or download.

“The HBO brand has a long and storied history in Taiwan. With HBO GO, our fans can now get quick and easy access to thousands of hours of premium drama, comedy and blockbuster movies,” said Clement Schwebig, managing director of WarnerMedia Entertainment Networks & Sales for Southeast Asia, Pacific and China. “The launch is boosted by our growing collection of local originals from Taiwan, including Workers and the upcoming Dream Raider series.”
