“HBO is proud to announce this expansion with Digicel in the Caribbean, further demonstrating our commitment to the region and signifying another positive step towards establishing legitimate relationships with authorized distributors in these markets,” said Javier Figueras, Corporate Vice President of Affiliate Relations at HBO Latin America. “We are excited for customers to enjoy our world-class programming and look forward to working more closely with local affiliates and authorities throughout the islands to further develop mutually beneficial relationships that bring viewers the best quality available.”
In addition to the premium package, a variety of basic channels are also available: AXN, Canal Sony, E!, Warner Channel, Cinemax and Telemundo Internacional.
“We are delighted and excited to work with HBO in the region. At Digicel, we are committed to delivering best in class content that provides our current and future valued customers with the best possible TV experience – and with this partnership with HBO, we are doing just that,” said Digicel Group COO, Andy Thorburn.
This month, HBO subscribers can tune in to the premieres of original productions such as the behind-the-scenes special “Game of Thrones: A Day in the Life,” season two of the satirical news program “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver,” and an illuminating portrait of a provocative 20th-century thinker in the documentary “Regarding Susan Sontag.” Viewers will also enjoy exclusive premieres of blockbuster films every Saturday, like the Marvel hit “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and the action-packed “Need for Speed.”
On MAX, subscribers gain access to award-winning international films, documentaries and series.
