You may remember FandangoNow as MGO, the preinstalled movie and TV store on Roku players and available on other devices. After the sale of Fandango to NBCUniversal, FandangoNow is now part of the NBCUniversal family.
The two companies have struck a deal to bring HBO shows to FandangoNow, starting with some of its biggest shows such as “Game of Thrones,” “The Sopranos,” “Girls,” “Divorce,” “Insecure,” “The Night Of,” and “Band of Brothers.” Series such as “Ballers,” “Silicon Valley,” “Veep,” “True Detective,” and “The Newsroom” will be added later.
Prices are in line with what is being sold on Amazon: $2.99 for SD and $3.99 for HD. Full seasons will vary but should be $38.99 HD and $28.99 SD for the most recent “Game of Thrones” season.
“HBO is synonymous with high-quality programming,” Adam Rockmore, chief marketing officer of FandangoNOW, said in a statement. “By selling HBO’s original content, including award-winning series like “Game of Thrones” and more in the coming months, FandangoNOW continues to expand the breadth and scope of quality entertainment available to its customers to enjoy anytime and from anywhere.”
“Fandango is a leader in the category for their ability to market to entertainment enthusiasts through their digital network,” says Sofia Chang, executive vice president, worldwide digital distribution, HBO. “This partnership allows us to expand our EST offering to HBO fans across a wide variety of devices,” added Chang.
