Home Box Office is the US television network responsible for such great programmes as Sex and the City, The Wire, The Sopranos, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Six Feet Under.
A premium TV programming subsidiary of Time Warner, it provides two 24-hour pay television services – HBO and Cinemax – to over 40 million US subscribers. The services offer some of the most popular subscription video on demand products – HBO On Demand and Cinemax on Demand – as well as HBO On Broadband, HD feeds and multiplex channels.
Internationally, HBO branded television networks, along with the subscription video on demand products and HBO Mobile, bring HBO services to over 50 countries. HBO programming is sold into over 150 countries worldwide.
So, the programmes are well-known and, most importantly, well-liked. Ripe for licensing, in fact. Which is where Rob Wijeratna and Charlie Donaldson from Rocket Licensing come in.
