HBO TO ENHANCE PROGRAMMING FOR VIEWERS IN THE CARIBBEAN
HBO announced effective June 1st, viewers can watch their favorite Showtime series on HBO Caribbean, 24 hours following the US premiere.
As the exclusive distributor of Showtime original content in the region, HBO will deliver not only its own award-winning original programming through worldwide premieres, but also the most current seasons of acquired series, which include the latest seasons of Showtime’s Penny Dreadful, Ray Donovan and House of Lies, in addition to the best slate of Hollywood films from the world’s top movie studios: Warner Bros. Pictures, Universal Studios, Walt Disney Studios and Sony Pictures Entertainment.
Fans can tune in to the anticipated second season of the horror drama Penny Dreadful, premiering its fifth episode on Monday, June 1st at 21:00 AST*, and with all subsequent episodes airing each consecutive Monday at the same time. HBO will also host a marathon of the first four episodes of the season, beginning at 15:00 AST on Sunday, May 31st.
Other upcoming series include season three of the Golden Globe®-winning crime drama Ray Donovan, premiering July 13th in the Caribbean, and the fifth season of the Golden Globe®-winning and Emmy®-nominated comedy drama House of Lies in early 2016.
Additionally, DIRECTV subscribers in Barbados, Curacao, Guyana, Suriname and Trinidad & Tobago can catch up on past seasons of all these series and more on HBO GO, which launched in the Caribbean earlier this month and will continue to expand throughout the territory. As an added value to the linear channel, this platform offers access to a host of content exclusively for the HBO/MAX premium package, including box office hits and HBO original programming.
