HBO NOW Becomes Available to Verizon Customers

Streaming service provides access to all HBO programming to No. 1 wireless company’s 100 million-plus customers

HBO’s over-the-top streaming service HBO NOW is now available to more than 100 million Verizon customers, the companies announced Tuesday.

The service is immediately available to all Verizon standalone broadband customers, including FiOS and high-speed Internet customers, for a 30-day free trial. HBO content will also be coming soon to Verizon’s pending mobile video platform.

HBO NOW provides users with instant access to all of the network’s programming, including classic shows like “The Sopranos,” “Deadwood” and “Six Feet Under.”

“This agreement with Verizon represents the commitment our companies share to respond to changing consumer behavior through innovation,” said Jeff Dallesandro, senior vice president of worldwide digital distribution and business development for HBO. “We’re excited to evolve our partnership with Verizon and bring HBO programming to a new generation of broadband-only customers.”

Verizon FiOS Internet and high-speed Internet customers can begin a 30-day introductory free trial of HBO NOW by signing up through Verizon’s website. After signing up, the carrier’s customers can access the service by downloading the HBO NOW app on their Android phone or tablet, Amazon Fire Tablet, iPhone, iPad or Apple TV.

HBO NOW is currently available through Verizon to non-FiOS TV customers for a monthly subscription of $14.99 following the introductory free offer. FiOS TV customers can continue to purchase HBO, which includes access to the HBO GO app and to HBO content on an anywhere, anytime basis via FIOS Mobile.
