CUPERTINO, Calif., March 9 (UPI) -- HBO announced its new standalone streaming service and an exclusive partnership with Apple.
The service will not require a cable subscription. The HBO standalone access has been long awaited by cord cutters -- people who stop paying for cable and opt for other streaming choices such as Netflix, Hulu, Apple TV, etc.
All of its content will be exclusively available on Apple products, including the iPad, iPhone and Apple TV.
