Hulu Japan in SVoD licensing pact with HBO
MUMBAI: Hulu in Japan and HBO have announced an expansive new licensing deal. Under the terms of the agreement, Hulu in Japan will have exclusive subscription video on demand (SVoD) rights to hundreds of hours of programming from HBO’s library.
The HBO titles Hulu will allow its viewers to stream on demand this year include ‘Game of Thrones,’. In addition to library titles such as ‘Sex and the City’ and ‘The Sopranos’, Hulu will expand its content selection to add over 800 episodes from HBO’s programming portfolio, including some series that have not yet been released in Japan, such as ‘Silicon Valley’.
Hulu in Japan chief content officer Kazufumi Nagasawa said, “We are very excited to be able to deliver HBO’s great line-up, which could be described as a treasure chest of US drama series, to Hulu’s viewers in Japan. Personally, I am very delighted to finally be able to watch ‘Silicon Valley’. We are committed to bringing to our subscribers in Japan the world’s greatest film and TV programming, which I am proud to say will now include hundreds of hours of HBO miniseries and series like ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘True Detective,’, and other hits.”
HBO president programming sales Charles Schreger said, “We are delighted to work together with Hulu in Japan to bring HBO’s distinctive programming to Hulu’s viewers, who have a great eye for foreign drama. HBO is committed to delivering the most groundbreaking and creative shows to its audience, and we welcome this opportunity to introduce more of our greatest series and miniseries to Hulu’s viewers in Japan.”
