Sky sign co-funding deal with HBO Max, UK launch of streaming network not likely!
Sky have signed a deal to continue broadcasting HBO shows in the UK, as part of the arrangement they have also agreed a co-funding arrangement with the HBO Max streaming platform which will mean that Sky will broadcast HBO Max shows in the UK and Europe.
The arrangement will cover UK, Ireland, Germany and Italy and will mean Sky will have access to shows such as the upcoming Game of Thrones prequel. It is set to run for five years.
The news of this new contract confirms our expectations that there would be no UK launch for the HBO Max platform, at least until the middle of the next decade.
