HBO is finally going to let you watch its shows without cable

October 16, 2014

Starting next year, you’ll finally be able to watch HBO on the web without a cable subscription. In a dream come true for cord cutters, HBO CEO Richard Plepler has confirmed the company plans to launch a “standalone, over-the-top” HBO Go subscription offering at some point in 2015.

This is fantastic news. Once the live sports issues are tackled (I’m looking at you NFL, take a lesson from baseball) we may see some true innovation in this space. Imagine a world where you get to choose what you want to consume, and put your money behind that choice. Sign me up.
