What is HBO? – The story behind this franchise

The simplest definition is to say that HBO is a subscription TV channel , that is, you must “sign up” and pay to receive its services.

But HBO is not just a pay TV channel; but it is by far the most famous around the world, since it has millions of active users.

But, success is not something new, because since its inception in 1960 it has been a success. And that in that year, its popularity arose because it differed from other channels; since it did not depend on the terrestrial broadcasting network typical of that time. This makes HBO a pioneer channel in this field, as it was the first channel  to not depend on this network.

If we talk directly about the content that HBO transmits, we can mention that it has been characterized by originality and creativity. Well, on this channel you can enjoy the most recent movies just taken from the cinema; but also original series, among the most famous, Game of Thrones, which was a total success in audience in all its seasons.

Another characteristic of HBO has been to attend to the tastes and preferences of users, which is why there is a space on its channel for lovers of watching sporting events.

On their channel they are responsible for broadcasting basketball games, boxing tournaments, among other sports. Also in Latin America, HBO has other channels such as HBO Signature, HBO +, HBO Family, Cinemax, among others, all this to pamper and entertain its many users in Latin America.

Speaking of avant-garde television, HBO has over the years been in charge of transforming its channel into streaming services . For example, with HBO Go (2010) in which initially you could enjoy at least a thousand hours of content. Also HBO Now (2015) which had basically the same content as HBO Go; but with the innovation that people could get the service without having a normal TV service.

Later (2019) it was announced that another HBO streaming service would appear in the world by mid-May 2020; but this time with the name of HBO Max.
