- “HBO NOW is a hit with consumers and we’re thrilled to make it available to millions of Roku customers,” said Jeff Dallesandro, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Digital Distribution and Business Development, HBO.
- “Bringing our programming to consumers through HBO NOW is a natural evolution for HBO, and partnering with a streaming leader such as Roku greatly extends the reach of our service as we usher in this next phase of innovation for our network.”

HBO Now launched in March 2015 as a stand-alone service that requires no cable TV subscription. HBO is going head to head with Netflix but is only available in the US at the moment. The company has not shared any user numbers but the new service is reportedly off to a great start.

HBO Now is available for $14.99 per month with a 30-day free trial.
