HBO has a lot of good shows like True Blood, Entourage and Game of Thrones just to name a few. It would be pretty swell to be able to watch those shows on Netflix. But sadly, that isn’t going to happen.
On Tuesday, Netflix raised the possibility of teaming up with HBO in a letter to its shareholders. It turns out that this was a bit premature. Before any discussions had even begun, it looks like it is dead in the water. HBO announced today that they are in no discussions and have no plans to work with Netflix.
And why would they? HBO’s own streaming service, HBO GO is a direct competitor to Netflix. It would make no sense. HBO needs to keep it’s subscribers anyway it can, not give shows away.
