Amazon’s presence as a streaming giant, capable of playing ball with Netflix, seems poised to balloon as people everywhere eschew cable for watching TV on the internet. The company announced Thursday the addition of HBO and Cinemax to its already robust package of streaming content, which will cost Amazon Prime members $14.99 per month. Cinemax and its less iconic slate of programming will be available for Prime members for $9.99 a month.
Sofia Chang, Executive Vice President, Worldwide Digital Distribution and Home Entertainment, HBO, said of the deal: “We have a very successful partnership with this great company that continues to evolve. We share the goal of providing Amazon customers more ways to access all of the high-quality HBO and Cinemax programming they’ve been asking for.”
