“There is huge opportunity in front of us… we will use all means at our disposal to go after it,” he said. “This is the most exciting inflection point domestically and internationally in the history of HBO.”
Last month, Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes signaled the idea was brewing to offer HBO Go without a TV Anywhere authentication, noting the increasing opportunity of broadband was making a direct-to-consumer HBO Go “more viable and more interesting.”
An Internet-only HBO Go offering has worked well after some hiccups in Finland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark, he said.
Bewkes said at the time there was no technological or contractual obstacle to changing the delivery scheme.
“We have the rights. We can do it if we want to now,” he said.
