HBO Asia to launch Go in Vietnam

Viewers in Vietnam can now watch series such as Game of Thrones


HBO Go, which provides subscribers with access to both US and Asian content, launched on Vietnam’s FPT Play app last week. IT allows subscribers in the country to access US content on the same day it is released for US viewers.

“It will be the first time young Vietnamese audiences have a chance to enjoy Band of Brothers, the latest season of Game of Thrones and thousands of blockbusters and action programming on platforms including smartphone, tablet, smart TV, the web and FPT Play Box,” said Vu Anh Tu, deputy general director of FPT Telecom.

Elsewhere in Asia, HBO Go is also available in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines and Singapore, with plans for launches in further territories in the region.
