Sky Deutschland has signed a multi-year extension to its exclusive HBO deal, giving it the rights to the pay TV firm’s top programming until the end of the decade.
Under the new deal, all of HBO’s premium new productions will continue to premiere exclusively on SkyAtlantic in Germany and Austria. However, the new contract also includes availability through Sky’s online video services Sky Go and Snap, as well as the set-top based Sky Anytime on-demand service.
“This has been a great partnership, now extended to the end of the decade. HBO is constantly raising the bar, creating the best series and original TV movies in the world. We are pleased that outstanding series such as Game of Thrones, The Knick and True Detective, as well as future productions, will continue to have a home on Sky Atlantic HD and will also be available on demand via Sky Go, Sky Anytime and Snap,” said Gary Davey, executive vice president of programming at Sky.
