HBO GO is currently offered to HBO subscribers through their cable television provider, however Plepler said that the service could be packaged with a monthly subscription in partnership with different broadband providers. The executive explained that customers could pay $50 a month for their Internet service and an extra $10 or $15 for HBO GO to be included in the package.

“We would have to make the math work,” he concluded.
