Re: HBO Channel

HBO is a United States cable channel, so you won't get it this side of the pond. Most HBO content in the UK is exclusive to Sky Atlantic which Sky will only provide to customers on their own satellite or Now TV platforms.

It is not available on satellite or cable in the uk. I don't know what adverts you are seeing.

HBO do have a uk website where you can download individual episodes each at a cost to playstation, xbox, itunes etc. As for the actual channel, nope no where in the uk under any platform.

As stated before, HBO have signed an exclusive agreement with Sky for rights in the UK. Sky Atlantic is effectively the HBO channel equivalent over here. Only where there are not seperate rights agreements (like the Netherlands) is the channel offered in HBO form.
