Older HBO programs now available to Amazon Prime subscribers will be going away next year after a current licensing pact ends, according to comments made by Richard Plepler, chairman and CEO of the network. Variety reports that Plepler, speaking to investors Wednesday during Time Warner’s first-quarter earnings call, said HBO is focused on adding subscribes to its HBO Now service, of which Amazon Prime is a content provider. The licensing deal made in 2014 for shows such as “The Sopranos” and “Big Love” no longer makes sense when measured against the pace of sales of HBO Now through Amazon, where users can gain access (for $14.99 a month) to “an expansive on-demand library of virtually all HBO original series of the past three decades,” Variety reports.
