‘Game of Thrones’ hits record viewership in season 8 premiere

Pachter noted which Netflix had more than 0 original shows which the item put out in 2018, while HBO had less than two dozen. The two companies had the same number of Emmy nominations.

“‘Game of Thrones’ has been the poster child for HBO’s mantra of quality over quantity,” Peter Csathy, founder of Creatv Media said.

Bob Greenblatt, the former NBC Entertainment chairman, has been named the chairman of WarnerMedia, as well as will be tasked with overseeing HBO, TBS, TNT, as well as TruTV. Under Greenblatt, HBO could soon start pumping out even more content. HBO will be likely to produce about 50% more content This kind of year than the item did last year.

Greenblatt will be no stranger to producing quality content. He produced “Six Feet Under,” one of HBO’s early hits. He also worked at Showtime through 2003 to 2010, where shows like “Dexter,” “Weeds” as well as “Nurse Jackie” became big hits with audiences.

While HBO has been able to survive without “Game of Thrones” for about a year, the last season aired in 2017, the finale of the show does bring up some questions as well as concerns about HBO going forward.

Csathy noted which with the finale, some users may take the opportunity to reevaluate if they want to keep their HBO subscriptions. He said which most viewers tend to sign up for a service as well as then forget the item, paying month after month even if they don’t actively use the service or only use the item for certain periods within the year.

“Consumers might use the end of a show to take an inventory of their services,” he said.

Not to mention, HBO will face increased competition through Disney’s completely new streaming service Disney+, due out in November, as well as Comcast’s upcoming service.

yet, 2019 isn’t genuinely the end of “Game of Thrones,” at least not entirely. There will be at least one prequel series based on Martin’s novels within the works. While the item likely won’t air for at least a year or two, the item could entice viewers to stick with HBO or encourage them to sign back up with the service ahead of its premiere.

“the item’s a never-ending game to keep ahead of the others,” Csathy said of the competition within the streaming world. “We may think which [HBO will be] fine in terms of content for the next 5 years, yet we don’t know what the others are bringing out or what will capture the minds of consumers. We just don’t know.”
