If you love watching HBO shows like Game of Thrones, Westworld and Big Little Lies, we have some very exciting news for you. A new streaming service is coming to Canada and it's a complete game changer, because for the first time ever, Canadians will be able to stream HBO shows, just like how they would Netflix, without a cable subscription.
That means you'll be able to watch new HBO shows on any device that connects to the Internet, whether it's on your laptop or phone. According to Now Toronto, Bell Media has just created a new streaming service for Canadians and it will have ongoing HBO shows. So Canadians will be able to stream episodes as they air in real time.
Bell Media created a streaming service called Crave that will combine their existing CraveTV streaming service, The Movie Network and also HBO programming. What a power combo. Crave will cost Canadians $19.98 per month.
Crave will have movies, specials and episodes of current HBO series released as they air. Never before have people been able to stream ongoing HBO programming in Canada without an HBO subscription, but all that is changing for the better. Previously, CraveTV would only release old seasons of HBO series online and would restrict new episodes to their subscription service on cable TV.
Existing Crave customers can keep their $9.99 per month subscription, which does include certain HBO shows but not ongoing episodes, or they can add an additional $10 a month to get ongoing HBO programming, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Current popular HBO shows include Game of Thrones, Westworld and Big Little Lies. To find out more about Crave or to subscribe to the new streaming service, you can visit their website.
