Featuring viewer data, subscriber revenue and 2021 Golden Globes award winning networks and shows

In the mid-1970s, HBO (Home Box Office) was one of the original premium movie networks. Featuring top movies without commercials, it was only available through a premium subscription obtained through a cable or satellite TV provider or as a perk during hotels and motel stays. Now HBO is also available as a streaming video on demand service, and its content catalog and audiences have both grown significantly. Last year, HBO grew its streaming presence with the May 27, 2020 launch of HBO Max, which is already seeing early success. HBO now boasts 41 million subscribers!

In this members-only STAT PACK, we’ll take a look at the top SVOD services in the U.S. by provider (Netflix is the clear winner!), the number of HBO subscribers from 2009 to 2020, including HBO Max subscribers, HBO subscription revenue from 2011 to 2020, and other HBO and SVOD-related statistics. We’ve even included “Game of Thrones” viewer data and 2021 Golden Globe awards stats by network and show! This is a fun read, so check it out!
