HBO announced Tuesday it's expanding its cable-free streaming service to yet another country. This time: Spain. (Video via HBO)
The move is likely thanks in part to Spain’s low number of cable subscribers and a high rate of online piracy compared to the U.S. It’s also part of a larger effort to expand HBO’s global reach.
Since 2012, HBO says it's added about 20 million international subscribers, more than double the amount of U.S. subscribers added during that time. (Video via HBO)
