:ohshit:

Pricing not yet announced, but I imagine it'll be similar to Netflix/Hulu (I hope).

I'll be shocked if it's under $20/month.

Anything over $15 and it is a no go for me. I'll just give my parents $15 a month to keep it on their cable sub and continue using Go.

A reg sub to HBO is already like $18 so he's probably right.

I see $25 a month happening.

m8 do you have any idea how much money HBO makes from deals with cable providers? A regular cable subscription to HBO (that is largely subsidized) goes for about $15-$20/monthly. There's no logical reason they would undercut their hugely successful cable deals by making this service less than $20 and in turn piss off the cable companies that they make bank off. There's just 0 chance of that happening unless they are retarded.

wait really? legit did not know.

wait are we talking about the basic hbo programs that you can get in a cable package that comes with games of thrones, boardwalk and ect.. or the premium shit?

25 a month is definitely pricey if you are adding that on top your netflix and cable payments.

It will be ravashed by Netflix and Hulu if they think they can get away with cable pricing just on name and their exclusive content alone.

They don't care. This is just added revenue for them, HBOGO has been up and running for almost 4 years now.

If you have cable already you might as well just go ahead and subscribe to HBO there as you'll still probably get Go for free. With cable that route is likely be cheaper than the stand alone if HBO prices it as everyone seems to expect.

Eat shit, Comcast.

Anywho, $20 seems like the sweet spot. Any less seems unlikey, but any more seems like a poor move. People aren't gonna pay more than double what they pay for Netflix.

Could be, but they'd be setting themselves up for failure.

As opposed to what though? This service already exists, its already successful, this is just free money for them at that point. If you want HBO shows, you either pirate or pay for it. There is no other option.

Do you consider mooching off their parent's or friend's account pirating? Cause if that's still an option, it's gonna be the route everyone takes.

I mean, at that price people are gonna either settle for Netflix/Hulu, continue to search for ways to mooch HBO Go, and/or outright pay for full-fledged cable. You're not gonna draw in new costumers by asking them to pay triple what they already do for other comparable services.
