Watching ‘Game of Thrones’ online in China will soon be legal
HBO is making it easier for viewers in China to access its content online. Legally.
The network announced Tuesday it had struck a deal with Tencent Holdings Limited, a leading online video platform in China, that would make HBO movies and TV shows — including Game of Thrones, True Detective, The Newsroom and more — available for streaming in China.
“This partnership with Tencent Video ensures that Chinese fans will now be able to enjoy our dramas at the high level of quality they were meant to be experienced,” HBO programming sales president Charles Schreger said. “This is a great partnership for both companies and for the Chinese consumer as well.”
