HBO delays Nordic launch

October 29, 2012

HBO has delayed the launch of video and online distribution of its programming in four Scandinavian countries, giving a head start in the region to rival Netflix.

HBO Nordic, the joint venture that runs the service, said that it had “slightly” pushed back the start date in Finland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark. It did not give a new launch date or a precise reason for the delay.

“Slightly pushing back the launch is not tied to one specific reason but simply our desire to meet all expectations,” HBO Nordic Chief Executive Hervé Payan commented.
