Hulu has just announced a deal with HBO for their video streaming services in the Japanese market.
The company said that the deal allows them to bring tons of programming from HBO for their subscribers in Japan.
Today, we are proud to announce that we have entered into a multi-year agreement with HBO to bring Japanese entertainment fans some of the most compelling American TV programming ever produced. Select HBO shows, including “Sex And The City” and “The Sopranos”, will be available to Hulu subscribers in Japan starting today, with additional HBO hit shows such as “Entourage” and “Band of Brothers” coming later this year. And earlier this month, Don Draper and the Madison Ave. heavyweights from the hit show “Mad Men” (seasons 1-3), launched on the Hulu service in Japan through a content partnership with Japanese distributor Pony Canyon.
