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

Linked on 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.
